Onc liri^lit -uiiiiv iiinriiinu' in .1 iiiie. 1 was 
inval<('in'(l at a \riT (.'arly Ikiiii- to sec tlir sun 
I'isc 111! I'l\ iiioutli, ami a most gorgeous 
siii'lit it was. TliL-re were just enough fleec)' 
elouds skimming the grey blue skies to re- 
tiect, in a most magnificent manner, tlie glo- 
rious coloring of the coming clay, ^fany 
others had risen for tlie same sigiit, and to- 
gether we watclu'd the didl grey grow lighter 
arid lighter until suddenly the great sun 
god. himself, came forth, hurling myriad 
shafts of splendid colorings upon the dark, 
shining ocean and the sleeping town. It was 
indeed a spectacle never 'to he forgotten, for 
all creation seemed so intensely glad and 
joyous. But we could not linger long before 
the beatifies of this scene, for we \^•ere soon 
ofF toward the shores of France. 

Abottt 9:30 a. m. this long-looked-for 
country came in sight, and I, .for one, truly 
felt like crying aloud — "La Belle France! 
Ah, La Belle France!" Words are indeed 
inadequate as a means of expressing its rare 
and charming beauty. It was like a splendid 
picture garden, all aglow with a delightful 
harmony of color. Then, to think that, in 
reality, it was merely a series of tiny farms 
and villages kept by hard working jDeasants. 
seemed quite incredible. That they, igno- 
rant as most of them are, should lie so ar- 
tistic and painstaking in 'laying out their 

small tracts of land is, indeed, marvelous to 
the a\('rage ^Vmeriean. For about two hours 
and a half we enjov.ed this ])ictui-es(|ue \ iew. 
\\w\ llu'ii we came in sight of Chei'liourg, an 
old French fortress, and were taken to its 
lan<ling on a small French tender. 

After going through the customs, we took 
tlie special train for Paris, which is a1)out 
■200 nnles distant. Every inch of the way 
was delightfully new and strange, and it was 
with eager eyes that we gazed out upon each 
small vilalge and the intervening landscapes. 
Of the many small towns, we were only al- 
lowed to stop in two, and then for a 
short time. Caen, the lii'st. is a typical pro- 
\ineial towji of Xormandy, with many inter- 
esting shops and houses. Evreux, the sec- 
ond, is famous for its beautiful cathedral, 
which we had time to see only from without. 

But all these minor interests finally van- 
ished i]i the thouglit that, before many 
hours, we should lie in the most beautiful 
city in all the world — Paris. When we at 
last alighted at the Gare St. Lazare, we were 
greeted with loud cries of ''Interpre'te! In- 
terpre'te!'' the meaning of which you can 
easily gtiess. 

Paris is truly a wonderful and beautiful 
city. Glowing descriptions do, indeed, fail 
to paint half its beauties. Perhaps the most 
striking efature of the city is its perfect sym- 
metry of plan. Parks, boulevards, buildings.

Going to the southeast across the Seine, 
we reach the district known as the Latin 
(Quarter, and here, on the highest ground iu 
the city, stands the Pantheon, occupying the 
site of the tonih of St. Geneviere, the jjatron 
saijit of l^aris. Tlie chapel first erected over 
her toinli was succeeded hy a chui-ch. which 
was. in turn, I'eplaced by the present edifice, 
which was also de<licated to St. (ienevieve. 
hut was converted into a memorial temiile 
hy the conventi<ni of ITfU. At that time 
it was given its ju'escnt name, and tlie fol- 
lowing inscription was |ilaced upon it: "Aux 
grands hommes la patrie reconnaissante." 
The piresent building is most imposing, lie- 
ing iu the form a (ii'cek cross 370 feet long 
ami v!7(i fi'ct wide, surninunted by a dome 272 
feer in height and 75 feet in diameter. The 
dome rests on a cylinder enclosed by an open 
('o!-inthian colonade, and may he ascended, 
thus gi\ing the visitoi- a very interesting 
\iew of the city and its environs. The nave, 
transe]its, and choir are ornamented with 
)iuinermis ])aintings, representing events 
such as the Coronation of Charlemagne, 
.loan of Ai'c at Domremy, the Death of St. 
(ienevieve, and the JIartyrdom of St. Denis, 
Px'low this portion of the liuilding is a dark 
and gloomy crypt which contains the tombs 
of many illustrious men, sueli as Hrrgo. 
Miralieau, Voltaire, Rousseau, Lagrange, and 

In strong c(mtrast to these somber monu- 
ments stands the Tomli of Xapoleon, which 

we find in the middle of a building erected 
for tlu' sjiecial ])ur]iose of sheltering this 
great man of history. The building itself is 
not unlike the Pantheon without, hut within 
it is much brighter and far more elegant. 
The sarcophagus oT the emperor, which 
stands in a circular cry])t .just beneath the 
ureat dome, is ^^^ feet long liy (I 1-2 feet 
wide, with a depth of 14 1-2 feet and was 
hewn out of a single block of Siberian 
jiorjihyrv. It is absolutely ]ilain, l)ut ex- 
ipiisitely cut and |)(dished. On the mosaic 
]ia\enu'nt beneath. wlii(/h represents a laurel 
wreath, ai-e inscribed the names of Xa- 
[loleon's battles, while surrounding the cry]it 
thei'e are twehe immense figui'es, svmbol- 
izing llie ]n-iucipal Xapoleonic victories. 
Lhev leml dignity to the ]ierfect harmony of 
the s(ene, and stem, in truth, like guardian 
ani;els walchim;- ii\ei- this s(ilitar\- tomb. The 
beauty of tlu- whole is greatly enhanced hy 
a soft, bluish light, which comes from the 
aitistic windows beneath the dome and falls, 
like a tender liemMlieticm, u])on this rest- 
ing place of one of history's greatest men. 

ilany other things in Paris are rarelv 
beautifid ami artistic, but nothing appealed 
to me more sti-oiigly than this expression of 
an undying de\'otion to the memory of the 
greate-t emperor of France, Xa])oleon Bona- 
parte. E. C. P.

Y. W. C. A. 

Since tlie lieginning of tlie school year the 
inilnence (d' the V. W. C. A. has been made 
evident in the life of our college household. 
A reception committee were the first to greet 
the girls, old as well as new, and to help 
make the first days in the new surroun<lings 
of school cheerful and homelike. 

The first Saturday evening tlie members 
of tlie association entertained the teachers 
ami students at a district school party. The 
guests, who came in costume suitable for 
children in a district school, were allowed to 
register in one study- After a short recita- 
tion in each of the various branches, refresh- 
ments suggestive of the study chosen were 

ser\ed. .Vmple time \vas given for the lunch 
and then fololwed a short program, which 
consisted of speeclies. recitations and music. 

'i he thought of the annual party is to 
bring the girls into closer acipiaintance and 
to foini new friendships. 

The two meetings which we have held 
were well attended and lirought to light an- 
other side of our work. The Christian spirit 
was revealed to the new girls and they were 
made to I'eel that college life is not t-omplete 
without the Y. W. ('. A.. A large percent- 
age o tthe students have joined the associa- 
tion, and we hope lo w in tlie remainder in a 
short time. 

At our first call meeting Miss Alnieda 
lloiinold was elected I'lvsident and Miss 
L'o-alie Sidell. \"iee President, eircuinstanees 
being siu-h that .Miss Sidell could not retain 
the |)residency. 


The ('(dlege of ilusic has already the 
largest enrollment that it has ever liad. At 
]iresent the enrollment exceeds that of both 
terms last year. There have been a few 
changes in the faculty, and we have as new 
mem'bers Mrs. Heleti Brown Eead, voice cul- 
ture: ^liss Catherine P. Jones, voice culture; 
Mr. Walter Statl'or<l. violin, piano and ear 
training. (.)n account of the large tiumber 
of students it Ijccame necessary to secure 
another instructor in piano, and Miss Mabel 
Wilson has been secured to fill this position, 
ili-s Wilson graduated from the College of 
Music in 19(14. and li'om the ])Ost-graduate 
course in ]!")05. She sjjent last year study- 
ing in ( 'hicago. ]\fiss Wilson is a fine pianist 
and has had a great deal of experience in 
teaching. The College is very fortunate in- 
deed to secure her.

by all parties witli a great deal of serious-

Our wdi'tliy ]u-cdecessors in cidleue jour- 
nalism made in last .Tune a most creditahle 
finish. Xo secret, cowardly quietus with a 
bare bodkin was theirs: rather a glorious 
climatic finale to a fine year's record. AYe, 
in iiuv turn, take pen in hand for the task 
before us. Do you crave inspiration, demand 
knowledge, require admonishment? We 
would meet all demands. It will be the aim 
of the staff of The Greetings to make the 
jiaper your especial interest wherever you 
are and whatever 3'ottr line of work in the 
college. But a college paper cannot exist 
without the co-operation of the whole stu- 
dent liody. Kead it, -si^ork for it, vrcifc for it. 

The college is at the beginning 
of another year's work. All things 
indicate a most successful year. With a de- 
cided increase in enrollment, a new depart- 
ment (if instruction added, and a splendid 
new building, the outlook is indeed bright. 
Xow there is no reason why the sixtieth year 
of the College should not lie made memor- 
able in many ways. Perfect co-operation of 
I'acutlv and studi'iits is one of the strong 
]ioints of our school. This fact is (dearly 
shown in ilie earnest endeavor of lioth, to 
promote tlie gr()\\th and A\-elfare of the (~'ol- 
lege. U'e might i. \"en say our motto is, ""For 
the (Jood of the College," and voice the sen- 
timent of c\ery heart. Xot alone is it in the 
heai'ts of the students of to-day, but in the 
lieart> of those who have gone out into the 
world from us. We W(Uild not fail to remem- 
ber all our l(i\al I'ricnds, who by their inter- 
est and su|i]i(irt arc helping us daily, and 
will stand liv us in everv need.

Or the glow of his flaming pen? 
Were her eyes annointed in that hour?

At the thought oi her gift to the waiting

Did a thought of her fame in coming years

The bvirlg'e at Mendotii was in 1)ad sliape 
— vfiT l)a(l. In fact, so 1)a(l that tin- cliief 
eniiineer when he liad passed <>\er it on in- 
s]iection trip ahont the middle of Oetoljer 
had ordered tliat a watclinian be placed np- 
on it nntil it coidd Ije put into safer condi- 

So old Dajiny Shaefer was stationed in 
eharu'e. His duties were slight, only to walk 
o\'ei' the l.iridi^e just before and ju-t after- 
each train, ami to keep his eyes end ears 
o])en, but still they wei'e ver}' important. 
Ami Danniiy felt their im|iortam;-e. He 
been division entiineer, but age had dri\'en 
him from that jiosition. Still he could al- 
ways be relied upon to give "the byes'" a 
lift whenevei' work in any department was 
particularly lieavv. So from October 17, 
rain or shine, he faithfidly cj-ossed the long 
bridge many times a day, testing girders, 
shaking his head o\'ei' rotted out ties, and 
deploring the management which had al- 
lowed the bridge, once his jiride an<l glory, 
to fall into, such condition. But alas, the 
worry and the breaks in his rest soon began 
to tell on the old man. He could not stand 
what he once could, and the thirty-first day 
of October found him in lied. 

'"The worst day I cortld have tuck," he 
groaned, ''when tonight all the youno'sters 

will be out wid their frolics, and that 
Krank O'Brien no more to be trusted than 
he might be." I->ut it was impossible for 
him to get up and Frank O'Brien must pei'- 
i'orce be trusted, 

W'lun young Sam Hollis and liis brother 
Will found that Frank was to be watchman 
their delight knew no bounds, 

•■Oh I but won't we fix Old Frank," they 
crowed, ""We'll pay him back for that trick 
about the jiii'ates' treasure, all right, all 
right." So they laid their idan-;. That 
night after Frank had followed the six-fifty 
east-b'.uind fi-eight over the bridge and had 
continued his journev from there to the vil- 
lage, ihe hoys ei'ept out from the cornfield 
■.\hei'e they liad been hiding. The\' stretched 
a long, stout M'ire ai-ros.; the track about

T he Athletic Association at a recent meet-

proved in order lo harmonize witli the (ither 
improvements in tlie CoMege, so they \'(jted 
to bear the expense of a liedge of sjjirea to 
take the place of the old fence that has long 
lieen a sdurce of annoyance to all of us. 
With the helji of Mrs. T. J. Pitner, who is 
sjjecially interested in beautifying our 
grounds, two hundre<l plants have been or- 
dered and will be planted l)y the time this 
issue of The (ireetings reaches our friends. 
The girls show much enthusiasm when, in- 
stead of taking the regular gymnasium exer- 
cise, they have a share in the planting. The 
shrubbery will form a iiernianent hedge 
from the driveway on Clay avenue around to 
the dri\e on the east side of the camjius, 
The old fence will be left as a protection 
to the young plants until spring, when it

with its beautifid trees and shniUbery gave 
ideasure to all alike. 

At the noon hour the guests were seated 
upon the large lawn, where a splendid

toil I got at last to the door of the room in 
M-hieh the cloak was kept. It was guarded 
liy a dragon, Imt I killed him and got the 
cloak. The mortal who wears it is entitled 
to three wishes." 

"Tliree wishes? Ah! I wish for a l)ig 
doll and a doll house for Christmas, and 
that we may come to Santa Clans' land 

•■There we are. This is the Xorth Pole, 
good seasoned oak, you see, and under it is 
Santa Clans land," said the elf. 

In one side of the pole was a quaint little 
door of ice. One could not expect it to lead 
very far: of course poles are not very spa- 
cious inside; but the elf pressed a Ijutton on 
one side and the door flew open, and a fairv 
stood -there Ijowing and saying, "Welcome to 
Fairy Land!" Then she led them through 
many halls, all made of jewels whose glit- 
tering made them as bright as day. Then 
they came to another door which opened and 
re^■ealed Santa Claus' Land. 

There were liirds and 'lurds, and flowers 
and flowers, and trees and trees of all de- 
scriptions. And there was a perfumed lake 
in the midst of a grove of Jewelled trees. 
Fairies were everywhere; in the flowers, 
playing hide-and-seelc, and in the grass 
gathering cobwebs for gowns. But as llar- 
.iorje and the elf came in they ran to them 
and examined Marjorie very closely and 
daintily s]u'inkled flowers over her. Then 
they went on until the fairies cried, "There 
is our dear Santa's house," and Marjorie 
saw a comfortable little cottage with vines 
running over it; and if there wasn't the dear 
old man himself, reading a newspaper on 
the back p(jrch. Marjorie knew him in- 
stantly and ran up to him. He arose and 

cried, 'AVell. well. Puck, so you Ijrought her 
all right," and took her on his knee. 
"Did you get my letter;-'" 
"To be sure, to be sure, and ])erhaps. riiy 
dear, you M'onld like to see the toys grow.'' 
"(irow? Oh, how funny. I was thinking 
about tJiat verv thing just as Puck came. 
S'l they grow!" 

"Certainly, my dear, how else did von 
think 1 got tliemr" 

'Ihen after Marjorie had been fed with 
cookies and milk by good Mrs. Santa, and 
after the saint himself had begged a piece 
of ]jie. they were conducted liy the fairies, 
who scomed to think a great deal of the 
kind old man. to a gate in a high wall. On 
the other side was an immense garden which 
was l)eing watered bv numberless elves. In 
different bed-, bordered with fur mutt's, and 
collars, and jewcli-y. and other things, were 
growing dolls, doll buggies. Xoah's arks, 
hmises, furniture, and all the other kind of 

"What are those funny little noises I keep 

""Why tho-e are the horns tooting as they 
grow," re])lied Santa Clans smiling. 

"Oh my, how funny!" and :\rarjoria 
doubled over in laughter. 

The bushes were growing paper dolls and 
rings, anil the trees were Christmas trees all 
decorated with candles and ornaments and 
growing all sorts of toys. 

In one of the beds in this delightful gar- 
den Marjorie saw beautiful dolls. 

"Oh. this is just what 1 wished for," she 
e.\-claiini d. joyfully, running to look at a 
paiticidarl\- lovely dolly, which regarded hei 
with calm eyes. S|u' wanted to pull it up 
right then. l,ut Santa Claus told her that it 
was mit quite gro«n yet, but that he would 
remembc]' lier at Christmas. After they had 
iinished here, Santa said, "Fow for the rein- 
deei-." and away they went, laughing gaily 
and ha\ing a merry time. They fed Dordiu. 



Blitxer and the rest of the gentle, fiinion,- 

■•All. nie, 1 am afraid that I cannot use 
them much longer. They are too old foi 
sucli long trips. People think that reindeer 
are old fashioned. I suppose I shall have to 
have an automobile with bells, for the chil- 
dren must ha^e bells." The jovial old saint 
seemed much cast down liy the idea that his 
reindeer were getting old fashioned. But 
Marjorie comforted him and said that she 
had always loved them. 

'"Dill you know that yon almost missed 
having any toys last t'hri<tnias? It was 
a \ery narro«^ escape, and J don't know 
what 1 woidd have done without Puck. Tor 
he traveled iill over the world disti'ihuting 
the toys. Well, just as 1 had gotten aliovc 
the South Pole, my sleigh hit the point, and 
there 1 was, with my reindeer on one side 
and I and my toys on the other. I couldn't 
get clown anyway I tried, so at last I sent a 
Marconie message to Puck. He helped me 
off, but my Liones wer so stiff that I could 
not take the toys. I was worried aliout it, 
too. for I was afraid that the dear children 
would not have their regular gifts, but Puck 
offered to distrihute them, and so that was 
the first time your old Santa Claus did not 
do his duty. I do not know whethi'r he 
played any tricks or not, for you know what 
a mischievous fellow he is, hut I hope not." 
" Marjorie laughed merrily when she 
thought of Santa Claus over the ]3ole. Then 
Santa told her that it was time for little 
girls to be in bed — and she was startled to 
find her mother gently shaking her, and say- 
ing those very words. 11. S., "10. 


When "Old Christmas" came to Shake- 
speare's England, he came to stay. Begin- 

ning M'ith the lighting of the Yule log on 
Christma- e\'e. there was merriment and 
cheer that lasted till Twelfth Day, the sixth 
of .lanuary. It was a time of hearty aban- 
don ment to pleasure, tempered only by the 
-olemii note that thrilled through the joy- 
ous music of the church. 

In the great hall, with its trimmings of 
grecji, gathered jnen. women and children 
of all classes, eager for the long evening of 
tales and sports. Chief among the games 
wcie snap-dragon, the snatching of raisins 
From a dish of lighted s])irits — and mum- 
ming or masking. Bands re[H'csenting fa- 
milial- characters, historical or legendary, 
would sometimes go from house to house 
and From \ illage to village. The favorite 
-toiy was that of St. (icorge and the 
Uragon, and one old print shows St. George 
with his mock horse, armor, and spear: the 
dragon, with open jaws and a scaly tail: a 
Turk with his ttirliaii and scimitar; and a 
do(t(n- hearing a huge Ixix marked. "Pills." 
Ihis procession was headed by Father 
Christmas himself, with his holly wreath 
ami wassail bowl. 

It is interesting to trace in the so-called 
English customs, heathen rites once widely 
se])arat(:d. The Iioman Baci-hanalia. which 
helped to lix the time of this greatest Feast 
Day, is seen in the sjiirit of equality recog- 
nized by rich and poor, masters and ser- 
vants, and in the mumming. The hangiug 
of the mistletoe takes ns back to the Druid 
priests, Avho, after their sacrifices, cut the 
jdant with golden hatchets. The sprigs 
V\ere tlieii fastened to the door-])osts, to pro- 
pitiate the winter spirit of want and sick- 
ness. Because of its associations the mistle- 
toe was long regarded as unfit for church 
decoration, but in the middle ages began the 
now familiar use — with the penalty not al- 
wavs avoided. From our Saxon ancestora

.Miss Weaver responded very graciously to 
tlie toast, ""Dreams go hy Contraries." She 
said: "Sixty years ago a few good men 
dreamed a dream and this College became a 
realitjr. Ambitions mothers dreanu'd and 
straightway these old walls resouiufeil to 
girlish voices. These girls in turn dreamed 
and class organizations and literary socie- 
ties became tangible delights. Finally onti 
day there came the Prince of Dreamers. He 
dreamed both night and day and so fast did 
his dreams materialize that workmen rushed 
to do his bidding." Miss Weaver had indeed 
become imbued with the spiirit of prophee}^ 
because she confided to its the visions of a 
society house, a Senior house, a new gyuma- 
sium and numerous other buildings. Sho 
proved to us that dreams go by contrariea 
and pledged her sttpport and loyalty to the 
Prince of Dreamers.

I'lic Greetings sends to evervoue its heart- 
iest wishes for a Merrv Christmas and a 
Hapy ISTew Year. 

The new building is Ijeing completed and 
we hope to be settled there immediately af- 
ter the holidays. Already new students hava 
l)eeu enrolled for the second term and we 
feel sure that tlie new year of the College 
will have a prosperous beginning. 

Oh. did you know that the College had 
jumg u)) its Christmas stocking! Since this 
i< the first time the College lias expressed 
its Ijelief in Santa Claus. surely it will not be 
disappointed. So, if you are an alumnae, 
friend or student be sure to hel]! Santa 
Claus fill the College stocking to the top. 

The Christmas vacation comes as the first 
Ijreak in our school year. For a whole month 
tlie girls have been humming Christmas 
songs and inaldng pretty gifts. Xow at last 
the joyous time has come and we go home 
to show our parents and friends what I. W, 
C. has done for us. Let us then show the 
i:est that is in us and by no means forget the 
gemiiiie Christmas spirit. 

It has been over eighteen hundred jesLVS 
since tlie message, "1-^eace on earth, good 
will to men."" was heard, and in all the ages 
the significtince of this has not been forgot- 
ten. Christmas is the time when old grudges 
and ill Mill must be forgotten. AVhv, even 
the pessimi,■^t cannot help Imt catch some of 
the Christmas joys, and feel that the world 
is not so l)ad after all. But not until we are 
in tur.e with all mir surroundings are we 
ready to enjoy Cliristmas to the fullest ex- 

The following letter from Mrs. Ivate M. 
Smith will lie of interest to many readers of 
The Greetings. Jfrs. Smith used to be an 
instructor in the College, many years ago. 
,nid aJtliougli now distant from it. she still 
i-etains a very lively interest in the old 
sell ool : 

Dear Dr. Harker: Accept my thanks for 
kind rememlirance in way of paper and 
"Greetings."" I see you are still booming 
ahead witli more l)uilding, and I rejoice 
with you. I hope to be present at the six- 
tietii anniversary, as I was the fiftieth.

Several times in the past few weeks iliss 
Eolfe has entertained tlie Junior class in 
her room on Saturday aftemoou. lifter a 
most pleasant hour of sewing and visiting 
delightful refreshments were served. 


Last Thui-sday the recital was somewhat 
different from the previous ones. Every 
composition was a work of Mozart's. The 
first uumlier on the program was the read- 
ing of a short sketch of his life, which prc- 
[lared the listeners, to some extent, for that 
which was to follow. 

There was a concerto and se\eral ])iano 
solos. A sonata for violin was played l)y 
Mr. Stafford, and Mrs. Eeed sang one of 
Mozart's song.s, ''The Violet.'" 

We hope to have several other recitals, 
each of which is devoted wholly to the 
works of one of the great masters. 


The regular studio spread is to be given 
Dec. 14 in the old studio. The girls had 
planned to have it in the new building, but 
on account of the floors, which are being 
varnished, it could not be held there. They 
console themselves by saying it will be the 

la>t in the old studio. ^Fany plans are be- 
ing made and the <]iread ])roiiiises to be the

I he Christmas season has an atmosphere 
and influence all it- "wn. It is the good 
time, not only we receive [iresents 
and are happy, but because it is the time of 
forgivenness and kindness. The message of 
(Christmas is love — (jod's love to us, and the 
s])irit of Christmas is l(i\e — our love for one 
another. Let u> g(i liack to the manger and 
receive our lesson< lliei'e. Think of tliat 
iiea.utiful Christma- nineleen hundi'ed years Ilow ipiiel and peaceful it Ava-! Think 
o ftlic shepheids watching their flocks in the 
^till night! — the angel song, "reaee on 
earth, good will to men." 

I3v the side of the manger of our Christ 
>\'e are taught tfie lessons of love, ptirity and 
ho]n'. Then if we have learned these les- 
sons, we will see that the Christmas spirit 
is not only confined to ministering to those 
we hi\e. but to thosr less fortunate than we. 
A gift, be it ex'cr so small, will mean twice 
as much if we only i-ememiier, "Who gives 
himself with his gift feeds three — himself, 
ills luingi'y neighbor, and ^fel"" \\"hen we 
think what this wondei'ful gift, the Christ, 
nu'ans to the worhl, then onh can we un- 
dei-stands why all the Christian nations ob- 
ser\e the Christmas festival. 

'1 he \. W. C. A."s annual sale which oe-

was a splendid success in every way. The 
society liaNI were appropriately decorated 
rejiresenting the four seasons. Sjsring waa 
daintilv decorated and salad and wafers were

such as might be seen while traveling in 
France: here was served ice cream; winter 
liniught us to the happiness of Christmas 
limes. Chocolate and dfiutjlinuts were served 




while we looked upon the well filled sock- 
ings and the chimney. Every one ate their 
piece of pumpkin pie when they entered the 
fall l)ooth, which was tastefully decorated 
with com and other fall fruits. 

Over one luindred dainty C'liristmas pres-

in chafing dish cookery as well as a special 
art and needle work course. 

Last Thursday night at 8 o'clock, Dec. 13. 
the Senior class was entertained by its class 
officer, Miss Anderson. We were indeed sur- 
prised and delighted when we found that 
the party was to be at the home of Eev. Eng- 
lish, pastor of Centenary church. Miss An- 
derson \\'as already here to receive us and 

slid wed in e\ery way that she was an ideal 
I lass olticer. After spending a pleasant 
time in general conversation, the startling 
announcement that an auction was to he- 
held aroused our curiosity. We were all 
gi\'en little liags in each of which were one 
hnnd]'e(l l)eans, supposed to be dollars, and 
you may be sure we felt rich. Dr. Marker 
proved to Ije an efficient and even inspiring 
auctioneer, and soon had all our dollars. 
Alter the articles sold had been e.vamined 
and coniniented upon, we were irnited (Hit

After the tennis games a jolly crowd of 
Fairview girls clashed into Laura Duncan's 
room and settled contentedly upon the pret- 
tiest of blue dress boxes. They were tired 
— too tired indeed to memorize a page of 
Bach — but )ieYer too tired to chatter. Larry 
Barton's latest gift, a box of the best Dolly 
Varden chocolates^ was fast disappearing 
when Laura, Anth a merry laugh, brought 
the conversation to a focus with: "Oh, girls, 
you all want to hear about Larry, don't 
you ?" 

"Well, ever since he joined the Delta-s 
there's been a continual round of gaities for 
him — nothing but stacked rooms, Dutch 
beds, high, jumps through the transom into 
his room. Sid Campbell gave the finest sort 
of a barn-part}' on his father's farm the 
other evening, celebrating the great Salem- 
Drake football game. Larry was above, the 
boys below; both sides were plentifully 
supplied with corn. Well, all went well un- 
til Larry stumbled over a can — nothing but 
a plain, ordinary, good-sized can. But the 
contents! It was a dear can for the boys, as 
they soon found out. Didn't old Larry just 
pick up can, contents and all and tliroiv it 
down! Those bo3's were the slickest, smooth- 
est things you ever sa^v, and Larry — well,, 

he just couldn't help it — ^lie didn't know 
anytliing was in it!" 

"Well, girlie, girlie, do tell us what was 
in it." came from the dress Ijox. 

"Oh — the l)oys first rose in wrath and 
drip]3ing with linseed oil — fine mixture, 
hay-seed and oil. Well, I'll warrant the 
cleaner struck a great get-ricJi-quick scheme 
when he saw those clothes. And won't his 
bill be great?" 

"Fine, wasn't it!-'" cried Elizabeth, the 
jiretty blue-eyed Sophomore. 

"Everyone likes Larry and Danny — such 
a team — such clean cut fellows. No one is 
the least bit jealous of them," added little 
Edith Cummings. 

"Such devotion between two boys, don't 
you think?" chimed Dolly. 

"Last year when Danny got hurt in that 
pole vault, Larry was always near him. Af- 
ter rehearsal he'd bring his mandolin and 
play every one of the glee club pieces — ^get 
u]) any time of night and cook whatever his 
invalid -(vanted — wrote his essay for him, 
and even staid home the night of the big 
ghost parade." 

I^arry's praises were cut short by a knock 
on the door. The office girl, standing in 
tlie doorway, said: 

"(lirls, I am going to make you happy — a 
l)OX for vou addressed to Miss Duncan."

The day dau-ned cool and crisp, ati ideal halting before their rooters,

the red and white ma(U' evervtliiiig- alive. 
As the whistle hlew, Danny and his men 
leaped to their places, while C'ainenm an<l 
his warriors waited for their final instruc- 
tions. Eeferee Dans flipped the coin for 
position. Lenthy Janiiarv tuok the kick-off. 
running back thiity yard-, luit Cameron 
punted immediately. Fptun dashed across 
the field to right, liut «as fdicfd out of 
hounds. The boys could Udt gain and 
l^pton punted. January and faiiuu-dn made 
only three 3rards and Daltmi puutcd. Soon 
Salem started for ten yards, \^-ith Biglow 
and Campbell alternating (m Bellaire"s 
',vings. Again they were fnn-cd to punt. 
Cameron hammered out i\\Q yards and re- 
ceived five more on Upton's olf side ]day. 
Giant Dearborn, without checking his speed 
at all, crashed against Upton, gives him a 
terrifie blow with his right knee and Upton 
falls prostrate. The grand stand let forth a 
storm of hisses and the 1)urly ta(dcle left the 
field disqualified. Danny was (ui liis feet 
again and Salem assumed the agrgessive. 
He shot into the cm^d twice at each tackle 
and gained five yanls. "Ked ajul Whitel 
Bed and White! Salem. Salem, out of 
sight!" roared Larry (in the side lines. 
"Hold, hold "em,"" yelled the grand stand ai 
Danny completed the distance for a down. 
Once more the duel began and lasted until 
the intennission and no teams wan lieartier 
applause than did these boys as they hur- 
ried foi hear their instructions. 

"AVell, I'll go 0"\'er and see his majesty, 
Eowe, and get more ordei's fm- rooting," 
said Larrj', leading Billy, the great Salem 
mascot, awajr from Box 11. But Billy, the 
goat, wanted to walk, and walk he did. First 
to Salem; finally he decided on the Bellaire 
ground, and quietly sat down liehind the 
goal post. Then Larry knew that Salem 
would win. 

The second half was on. Danny hammer- 
ed out do^^■n after down, Imt a kick was 
forced. Cameron's men got possession of 
the liall after one of the most terril)le scrim- 
mages, and Danny. I)adly battered up, was 
carried off the field, fjarry wa< Inisy work- 
ing with the coach trying to revive him. 
Tlie rooters were more dazed than Danny, 
however. Could it he possi1)le that he, the 
darling of the grand stand, could not play!^

"Give me a show, coach — let me play,

We announce with pleasure that Miss 
Elizabeth Ilarker lias l)een appointed to as- 
sist Miss Knopf in the School of Fine Arts. Harker is a graduate of the School of 
Fine Arts and has studied several years in 
the Art Students" I^eague and the School of 
Industrial Art, and is very well qualified for 
her position. She will have charge of spe- 
cial classes in all the applied arts, and spe- 
cial attention will be given to illustrations, 
leather and metal work. 

The new studio is splendid. In every way 
it is considered not only the most attractive, 
as it should be, but the best part of the 
building. It is on the fifth floor, well 
liglited by skylights, and splendidly equip- 
ped. It is undoubtedly one of the 
studios in the state. 

'file regular exhibition of students" work 
for last term was given in the old studio 
Dee. f!». f90(i. Studies in charcoal, water 
i.olor and oil, with many beautiful pieces of 
china, made a \ cry pleasing display. The 
lasr, we say, is always the Ijest, and so we 
have found this one far better than the ones 
preceding. 'W'e feel sure that with all the 
ad\antages of the new studio our spring ex- 
liibition \rill far surpass all previous ones. 

The ""Studin Spread"" was given in our old 
studio Lee. IL li'Otl. Our guests. Dr. and 
Mis. Ilarker, ^liss Weaver, Mrs. Ljaiian and 
our gills, sat at our large table, which was 
plaicil in the center of the studio. In the 
(enter of the table was a Christmas tree, on 
which was a present for each. One girl acted 
as Santa Clans and distrilnited the presents. 
The table was made still more attractive -by 
the link' lighted candles at each jjlace, used 
to toast marshmallows. Another pleasant 
feature was the use of the chafing dish. At 
intervals along the tal)le were chafing dishes, 
foil)- in all, with four girls to preside over 
iheiii. and liest of all to turn out a delicious 

The menu was as follows: Chicken salad, 
Welsh rarebit, potato chips, nut sandwiches, 
pickles, olives, ice cream, cake, chocolate, 
and marshmallows. 

All the girls are interested now in the 
casts. Before they have found the light so 
poor that it was not the pleasure it is now. 
The life class is also creating much interest. 

Georgie Metcalf, Gladys Elaine, Jennie 
Ilarker, and Eleanor Eeuling have been en- 
rolled this term. 

\\'e are expecting to have many out of 
town students this term. 

Miss Knopf aaid Miss Harker will exhibit 
some of their work Jan. 29 at the opening 
of the jie^' building.

The Domestic Science department is now 
settled in the new l)uilding. Their quarters 
are very spacious, and, in comparisoii with 
the cramped ones formerly assigned to them 
througli necessity, seem quite palatial. The 
cooking room is a long room excellently 
lighteil. The cooking tables are in a hollow 
square with one end left open. Each desk 
is equipped with an individual gas stove and 
the necessary drawers and pastry boards. 
Xear the gas range is the sink, wliich is a 
model in a sanitary way. The spacious pan- 
try is well lighted and has an abundance of 
shelves to liold the ■sery complete kitchen 
equipment which has Ijeen provided. The 
sewing room is no less a model of its kind. 
It has small sewing tables and mission sew- 
ing chairs. Like thi' cooking room it is fur- 
ni-:hod witli blackl)oards for lecture work.

In response to this in-\-itation at seven 
o'clock of December seventeenth, 1906, the 
members of the Y. W. C. A. Cabinet gather- 
ed in Miss Weaver's room. After talkius; and

center of the talile and from the pie came 
many red and green ri)jl)ons. Around this 
myterious pie was a ri1))ion upon which were 
fastened toy iiorns. While we were trying 
to remove these horns, miniature Christmas 
trees, decorated witli holly berries, tinsel 
and tiny candles and inilividital chicken pies 
were given to each girl. also celerv' and lettuce 
sandwiches and cocoanut pies were served. 
Each girl was then given a rilibon from the 
large pie and told to pull it. Much to her

How moons and stars were listening; 

And how the heavens rang 
And filled the earth with melody 

As if an angel sang. 

This is the legend quaint and sweet

Which tells how nature ^'elcomed Him 

Wbiise birth we celebrate; 
Old as tlie Scandinavian hills, 

A fancy, m- a trutli? 
Tlie story floats from out the Past 

Winged with immortal youth! 

That morn tlie stars in rapture sang 

Pi'oel aiming Jesus" ])ii'th, 
The clouds, like wliite wings in the air. 

Came floating down to earth; 
The soft winds whispered through the trees, 

^\lrile in each sheltered nest 
The l:)irds awoke and sang a song, 

iloved by a sweet unrest. 

The flowers, dumb beneath the mold — 

Asleep beneath the sod — 
Awoke to thrills of fresher life 

And hurst the sullen clod; 
The grasses sprang in spear-like leaves 

And nodded merrily. 
And over hill-tops, sweet and bare, 

The winds kept jubilee. 

The fettered lakes and frozen hills 

From east to utmost west. 
Felt hidden springs within them move 

Like great thoughts unexpressed. 
And over all the wilderness. 

And in the desert calms.

Broke into hymns and psalms.

Angelic forms came trooping swift 

Tlirougliout tlie ^^■aiting night, — 
They pressed so close, they flew so fast. 

No hand could stay their fliglit: 
So fast they tlew. so close thi'y |n-essed. 

They formed a shinning ring — 
And then, with folded wings they knelt 

Before the jiew-horn King. 

So mils the legend quaint anil sweet 

(Let e\ery heart translate). 
Which tells how Nature welcomed llinu 

\Vhose birth we celebrate; 
Old as the Sc-andinaA"ian hills — 

A fancy, or or truths 
The story floats from oitt the Past 

\Vinged with immortal youth. 

A sense of all that Christmas joy 

Is in our hearts to-day. 
The echo from the singing stars 

Has earthward found its way: 
The title of love still sweeps the world. 

And, as the years go by.

I'he first pu]iils" recital of the term was 
gi\en Jan. 17. This was the first recital 
gi\en in the new conservatory and a large 
niunlier were present. \\'e are very glad in- 
deed to be in the new building. The studios 
are on the second and third floors, while the 
priu-tice rooms occupy the fourth ami fifth 
lloors. The auditiu'ium is (piite large, hav- 
ing one balcony. The stage is well arranged 
and i- suit;dile for a large clun'us. The au- 
ditorium is beautifitlly lighted. 

We were very sorry to hear that Miss 
,Ion(_'s ccndd not returti after the holidays, 
but we are fortunate in having in her ]ilace 
.Miss Kdna Hatch. Miss Hatch sang for us 
ricently in chapel. She has a beautiful 
voice and has it in perfect control. 

The term concert will be given Feb. I.

The Freshmen class was delightfully en-

before the holidays. As Miss Page received 
us she asked each one to provide something 
for entertainment — a song, piano solo, reci- 
tation or charades. AYe all began to think 
what we could do, and as a result many 
amusing and interesting impromptus were 
given. Dainty refreshments were then 
served, and while we were eating Santa 
Claus came, bringing a present for each one. 
\Ye sang songs and had a grand marcli until

NO. 6 


On Tuesday, January 29, 1!M17, occurred 
the formal opening of the new building for 
the department of music, the fine arts and 
domestic science. The growth of the Col- 
lege and the demands for more room have 
necessitated this splendid addition. In the 
afternoon the alumnae of the College gave 
an informal reception to the people of Jack- 
sonville and the friends of the College. The 
art studio was a place of special interest. 
Many of the pictures shown were the result 
of Miss Knopf's work. Everywhere the fact 
was evident that Miss Knopf's efEorts to 
measure iip to the standard of the best have 
been successful. Kefreshments were served 
in the Domestic Science room, prettily fitted 
with tables and lighted with candles. The 
Domestic Science girls in their caps and 
aprons made very atractive waitresses. 

In the evening the large auditorium with 
its main floor and balcony seating about 
seven hundred, was more than filled; scores 
could find no entrance at all. The exercises 
were opened with the singing of the dox- 
olog3\ which was followed by an address 
from President Harker on ''The Inception 
of the New Building.'" Dr. Marker said: 
"The Woman's College had its origin in the 

wi.-idoni and sacrifice of noble men and wo- 
men sixty years ago. The men who first met 
under official appointment for its organiza- 
tion, were men greatly honored in church 
and community. There were four ministers 
anil iive laymen — liev. Peter Cartright, Rev. 
I'eter Akers, Rev. W. D. R. Trotter and Rev. 
William J. Rutledge, and William Brown, 
A\'illiam Thomas, Matthew Stacy, Nicholas 
Milburn and John Mathers. Let us honor 
their memories and thank God for their un- 
.■-elfish labors, devotion and self-denial. It 
re(|uired more sacrifice than we maj' under- 
stand to build a college sixty years ago, but 
it required e^■en more to maintain it in the 
dark days from 18G0 to 1S7.5. During these 
years the very life of the institution was 
threatened four times, once by a debt of 
more than $30,000 and three times by fire. 
But the friends of the College showed that 
their faith and spirit were unconquerable-. 
Surely there were giants in those days, and 
it ought to fire our hearts and nerve our arms 
and open our pocketbooks to know that we 
ai'e the successors and legatees of men and 
women of such heroic mould. 

"The fiftieth anniversary of the College 
was held in 1897. To this jubilee came the 
former presidents, Jaquess, DeMotte and 
Short, and the girls of earlier and later 
years. As they talked of the past there 
came to them a vision, and inspired by this 



past they saw the possibilities of tlie futiuv. 

'•Aud this was their vision: They saw 
that tlie foolish discussion as to whether 
women are capalile of receiving an educa- 
tion was past. They saw tlie himdreds and 
thousands of young women knocking at the 
doors of our colleges for admission. They 
saw that there was no college in the central 
west or west for women alone, and that such 
a college would soon lie an imperative de- 
mand. At the same time they saw Jackson- 
ville, a city set on a hill, in the center of a 
territory filled with young women needing 
a college. Then they saw the little college 
of lSil7 expanding, fii'st stretching out its 
wings, then [lurchasing the TjUrton lot and 
the Si_']f lot. then building a power house, 
then a College of Music liuilding, then a 
gymnasium, a science hall, then a separate 
building for the societies, and then addi- 
tional dormitory buildings. 

"And what they saw in the vision God 
gave them courage to attempt. Little by lit- 
tle the college of 1897 did expand, and now 
by the grace of God the building for music, 
art and domestic science and other general 
purposes is an accomplised fact. And we 
trust Him still that the rest of the vision 
will also in time be realized. 

■"The building we are met to dedicate is 
part of an effort to secure $100,000. The 
building will cost completed $50,000. When 
we have secured this amount and $25,000 
more as the hegining of an endowment, Mr. 
Carnegie has promised us $35,000. In not 
quite a year we have $43,000, so that wo 
need $7,000 more to complete the payment 
for this liuilding. and then $95,000 more to 
secure our part of the endowment. 

'■'The spirit of the fathers ha> taken pos- 
session of their children. IMore has been ac- 
complished in the past ten years than was 
accomplished in the previous fifty. It is the 
support of our friends that has sustained our 
faith and changed our vision into reality. I 

iliank ihcui all from the de|ifhs nf my heart. 

■■\\'e b(i|ic Ihat (lie reiiiaiiiiiig $:!•.', 0(10 may 
lie sccui'cil liy next cnnuncnccincnt. It is 
our sixtielb annivci'sary and \vc expect an- 
otliei' jnbilec. .May we not hope that every- 
(ijie here and many others besides will con- 
Iriliute to the liest of their ability, emulating 
the lilierality and the dcMition of men and 
women of roriiier days? 

■'The \\'ii)iiairs Cullege was founded for 
the honor and glory of (iod. We want every 
girl M-liii comes liere to k'liow well many 
things, luit most of all we want her to know 
and to love Jesus Christ as her Lord. We 
want progi'ess and development for them 
tliat tliey may use their po\\er for Him. We 
want buildings, en(lowuie]it and equipment, 
liut all in order to glorify Him. It is there- 
fore fitting to dedicate our new building to 
the service of Almighty God."" 

After Dr. Ilarker's address the dedica- 
tory prayer was offered by Di-. W. F. Short, 
president <if the College from 1875 to 1893. 

Following the dedicatory pi'ayer a letter 
was read from Dr. De-\Iotte heartily cheer- 
ing the College and expressing his good 
wishes for hei' liright future. 

Dr. I'itner was next introduced and gave 
the following address in behalf of the trus- 

"Standing in this beautiful auditorium, 
in the midst of this large company of 
friends. I am stirred with emotion. The 
dominant simtiment is gratitude to God for 
this noble building and for His beiificent 
|iroviilenee which has rested so richly upon 
this institidion. 

■"Every year has marked the advance of 
the College. In the succession of new build- 
ings, this is the crowning achievement. I 
voice the sentiments of the trustees in ex- 
|iressinn' a grateful appreciation of the in- 
terest, sympathv and generous aid of many 
friends in thi city and vicinity, and at a 
distance as well. Of these mention should 

THK c()llp:gi': greetings 

V' t^ 

be made of tlie noble women fl-bo have given 
so freely of time and mouej' to our College. 
And in this building movement we have 
Ijeen specially favored by large gifts from 
ilrs. I'hillippe, Mrs. Sconce and Mrs. Swift 
J must expres.s our great appreciation of the 
woi'k of President ITarker in this enterprise 
But for his energetic, initiative and munifi- 
cent contribution, this building would not 
have been erected for a year at least. His 
enthusiasm has been contagious. 

•■'The Woman's College is. exceedingly for- 
tunate in having at its head one who has 
j.iroved so able ami ellicicnt, both as educa- 
tor and executive. To bis high ideals, -ndse 
plans, unfaltering taitji. constant devotion 
and unceasing work, the remarkable achieve- 
ments of the past ten years are due. He 
has deserved and received hearty support 
from trustees and friends. Our faith in him 
and in the future of the College has been 
manifested by underwriting the paper which 
procured the means to meet deficiencies in 
subscription and promptly complete the va- 
rious buildings planned by him who saw 
better than we the needs of the institution 
in these directions. 

"In the planning of this building the 
president has been greatly aided by our in- 
defatigable musical director and his efficient 
faculty; also by the director of the art de- 
partment. Her aspirations have long been 
skyward. iSTow she has a studio that cannot 
be overtopped nor can the bright skylights 
be shut out. 

-'This fine building is to be especially the 
home of music and art. Sitrely our splendid 
schol of music will still further flourish 
when it is so finely housed and equipped. 
What a beautiful theater for recital and au- 
dience is this. We hope our friends will 
avail themselves of the opportunity .to spend 
many happy hours in this hall. This is pri- 
marily and principally a music hall. The 
tru.stees are proud of the College of Music. 

Its growth in the last few j^ears is truly re- 
markable and rcfU'cts great credit on the 
energetic and able director and the entire 
faculty of the school. The faculty was never 
-0 numerous and strong nor the standard of 
work so high as it is now. Judging from 
the past and the present favorable conditions 
«'e have reason to exjDect large things from 
our music department in the near future. 

""The growing and widely extending in- 
terest in the Woman's College encourage 
us. as trustees, to give our best thought and 
effort in providing well to meet the ad- 
\anced demands and expectations of friends 
of lilieral education fur young women. 

""The course of instruction in the se\'('i-al 
departments of the College at various times 
during the past few years has been extended 
and strengthened. These standards will not 
lie lowered. There will be no lessening of 
requirements to secure or retain students. 
Thorough and conscientious work on the 
part of teachers and pupils will be required. 

""I^'urther advances in the curriculum is 
the purpose of the trustees as soon as the 
necessary funds ai'e secured, and the en- 
dowment now expected to be raised the com- 
ing year will materially aid in executing this 

-We feel that the Woman's College 
is no^- entering an era of enlarged work and 
usefulness, and I bespeak for this institution 
of Jacksonville the continued friendly inter- 
est and cordial support of tlris commttnity." 

Mrs. Belle Short Lambert, class of '73, 
aiul alumnae trustee, spoke as follows: 

""This is indeed a glad and a happy day. 
A day of fulfillment, a day of realization, of 
liopes fondly cherished. We seem to-night 
lo stand in a hall of dreams — dreams of long 
ago — beautiful dreams — come true! 

""Otir College of Music and Art so long 
talked of, so ardently wished for, is bttilded 
Its firm foundations are beneath our feet; 
its walls of brick and stone are a substantial 



I't'iility; aii'l with prirlf and rejoicing we 
ha\e come to eelelu'iite it< completion. 

'"Music lias had a large place in the life of 
manlsind, even from the beginning of the 
race. Jalial, the tentmaker, and "Juhal, the 
father of all that handle the harp and or- 
gan,' were of the same generation, and down 
through all the centuries, among all civil- 
ized people, the idea of home and its shel- 
ter has blended with the idea of music with 
its sweet and inspiring influences. 

"Educators recognize this humanizing 
value in music and make large use of it. So 
it i^ not surprising tliat the founders of Illi- 
nois ^Voman■s College shoixld have given it 
an lionorable place in the curriculum, even 
in lilt' (ii'st vear of the school's existence.

the ornamental jjranches taught there, and

scribed for the Junior year. 

"How -^^'ise, how far-seeing were those 
generous, self-sacrificing, stalwart men of 
sixty years ago! How would they rejoice 
with us tonight because of tliis fine new 
building wherein a place with adequate 
ci|iiipment is made for each of these new 

'"'I'o-day we have been truning the pages 
of some of the catalogues of bygone years, 
noting the courses of study, and we have 
i)('cn iu()\-e(l with gratitude that our Alma 
Aiaier Juis been able to give so liberally to 
tliose \\'ho have sought her instruction. 

"'Since l(Sr)2 diplomas have been given by 
tlie Illinois Woman's College to those who 
completed the prescribed work in the liter- 
ary courses, but in music and art, teachers 
followed their individual methods for more 
than twenty years, and not until 1875 was 
tliere any prescribed course. In that year 
when Dr. Short, my beloved father, accepted 
the presidency of the school, one of his first 

efforts was to secure properly graded, com- 
prehensive courses of study in music and art. 

■"After consultation and compiarison of 
lines prescribed in eastern conservatories, 
courses were arranged, and through the 
service of Judge Tf. Thomas, theu president 
of the board of trustees, the authority of the 
secretary of state was obtained granting the 
C'ollege the power to award diplomas for the 
completion of the work prescribed in music 
and art. The first of these diplomas were 
given in 1879, the Illinois Woman's College 
being, so far as 1 know, the first in the "state 
to confer such honors in these departments 
of study. 

■"From that time music and art became of 
ever increasing importance to our school. A 
building devoted to these interests was a 
large part of Dr. Short's plan, and the Lur- 
ton property, now the northwest corner of 
the College campus, was coveted for this 
purpose. Great efforts were made to carry 
out the desire to purchase the property and 
erect thereon a suitable building. But about 
that period p)erilous times set in for girls" 
schools. Coeducation was the new idea that 
possessed the educational world. Men's col- 
leges and universities more or less willingly 
opened tlieir doors to women. Public schools 
were increasing their facilities and the high 
school was fast becoming a part of the sys- 
tem in every town, so that it was no longer 
impossible for a girl to make advancement 
in study in her own home. Under these eon- 
diti(nis there was little incentive to men and 
wonuui for bestowing their gifts upon a 
girls" school. 

■"Those years were discouraging for those 
who had the responsibility and management 
of schools for young women. Patronage de- 
clined. Girls went with their brothers to 
coeducational institutions or were content 
with their high school education. Thus 
many schools were forced out of existence, 
anion"' flhich were the Woman's Colleges of 


Cincinnati and of Pittshurg of our own 

■• "In our own city the Young Ladies" 
Athanaeum, which for a nuniiier of years 
had a successful career, was forced to close 
because of lack of patronage. The Jackson- 
ville Fenrale Academy, yielding to the pres- 
sure, has become coeducational. 

"That the Illinois Woman's College not 
only survived the testing time of those try- 
ing years, but that with renewed life and 
vigor, with enlarged capacity, with in- 
creased facilities, she has entered upon the 
most successful period of her career, is a 
source of deep gratification not only to the 
administration, to the students and alumnae, 
hut in an even greater degree to this whole 

"President Marker, in behalf of the 
alumnae, in behalf of the student body, in 
lichalf of the friends of the College, with 
that new spirit of a greater Woman's Col- 
lege and a greater Jacksonville tliroliliing i:i 
our breasts and stirring our civic pride, we 
congratulate you, and tender you our heart- 
felt gratitude for this advancement of one 
of our most valued institutions, this suh- 
stfintial addition to our city's wealth. To 
no citizen of to-day or of the past, is Jack- 
sonville more greatly indebted, and for your 
wisdom in administration, for your geniu; 
of achievement, we \\'ould accord you our 
highest honor." 

-Rev. Ho]-ace Eeed, D. D., was the next 
speaker. He referred to Jacksonville as an 
ideal location for a great school and the 
standing the school had in our state. -That 
wherever he went ministers of other de- 
nominations endorsed the excellence of the 
work done, and paid a special compliment to 
the support given the institution by minis- 
ters of other denominations in this city. 

The Illinois Woman's College is a daugh- 
ter of the conference and the conference 
looked upon the development of its offspring 

■nith great pride. She is winsome to look 
upon, drawing within her walls young wo- 
men from the best homes who are here fully 
equipped for life's activities. In all the 
years of her history she has been self-sup- 
porting, never having asked a minister or 
layman for one cent to meet current ex- 
penses, every dollar given to the school go- 
iiig into the equipment and enlargement of 
the institution. Dr. Eeed closed by refer- 
ring to the youthful spirit of the College 
witli no wrinkles or mark of care on her 
bj'ow, looking witli undimmed eye out on a 
luturc that promises much to the church 
anil the state and to the city where she has 
foTind an abiding place. 

After the dedicatory exercises one of the 
hesi programs ever reiidcrcil hy tlie faculty 
of file ^^'omall's College was given. Each 
nuiiihei' was heartily applauilcil hy the en- 
thusiastic audience, wliich, frum the liegin- 
ning to the close, was tense with interest 
and keen enjoynu'iit. ^^'ithout an exception 
hearty encores were ackllo\^■lellged liy tliose 
on tile program. 

The first number by ifr. and ilrs. Frank- 
lin Stead was greatly enjoyed and hut add- 
ed to the high appreciatimi in \\hich they 
are held by Jacksonville audiences. 

Miss Edna Platch niaile her first appear- 
ance as a member of the faculty and fully 
met the expectation of lier hearers. Miss 
Hatch has appeared fre([uently l^efore, but 
never more effectively. 

Mrs. Theodora C. B. Dean of the depart- 
ment of expression delightfully rendered 
Count Gismond from Browning, giving the 
connecting stor}- so that her audience could 
enter more fully into its enjoyment. 

This was followed bj' a monologue char- 
acterizing an inexperienced housekeeper's 
first marketing at the butcher's. 

Mr. Walter Stafford gave two violin solos, 
accompanied by Mr. Stead at the piano. Mr. 
Stafford is a musician of fine ability and the 



College of l\riisic is proud to he aljlo to num- 
ber liim among its faeult^y. 

^frs. Stead rendered three selections fol- 
lowing Mr. Stsvlford. Comment is entirely 
unnecessary, for those wlio have once heard, 
Mrs. Stead IxUnw that she is a pianist of rare 

As a closing number of this excellent pro- 
gram, l\Irs. Helen Brown Ivead of the de- 
partment of vocal music i-eiidered four solos 
of great beauty. Tlie pi'ogram in full is 
given in the music report of this issue. 

At tlu- close of the exercises Dr. Harker 
invited every one to go through the Imild- 
ing. On the first floor are the domestic sci- 
ence, cooking; harmony and literary rooms. 
On the second are the studios of Prof, and 
j\Irs. Stead, I\frs. Ivolp and Mrs. Eead; also 
the oi'Hces of tlie school of music. On the 
third floor are the studios of Prof. Staiford, 
Prof. Jeffries, Mrs. Colean, Miss Hatch and 
Miss Wilson. The fourth and fifth floors 
contains the music hall and the practice 
rooms. On the fifth floor is the art studio 
conducted by Miss Knopf and Miss Harker. 

The School of Music, which has been of 
such high standing, is now housed in quar- 
ters that are in every respect adapted to its 
use. and whicli will help tlie deiiartnient to 
acc(ini|ili'^li still gi'eater things in the fu- 


The dejiartment of home economics under 
the directions of Miss .Mice ^1. (Junii is lo- 
cated on the first floor. Plenty of space ha< 
been utilized for the convenii'iice of those 
wlio ni'e enrolled in tlie various coui-ses. The 
])antry to the left as one enters tlie room has 
been shehed sulliciently so as to hold the 
cooking utensils which are used in tlie work. 
Gas jets at frequent intervals on tallies pro- 
vided for the purpose, in addition to a gas 
range, will be used for cooking. 

Special attention has also been given to

With sixty years behind it, with a presi- 
dent fully alive to its opportunities, and 
with a future radiant with hope, the Illi- 
noi,- W(unan"s Cullege begins a ne\\- era of 
its histoiy. 




In response to the cordial invitation ex- 
tended ))y ilrs. Marietta Mathers Eowe 
president of the Alnmnae Association of 
Illinois Woman's College, a large company 
of resident alnmnae assembled at her beau- 
tiful home on Wednesday, January 23rd. 

The afternoon was spent in friendly in- 
formal conversation on College topics, and 
the ladies decided that in honor of the im- 
])ortiint e^'cnt of tlie formal ojiening of the 
line new ])uilding they would tender a re- 
ception to the students of the College and 
t(i the citizens of JacksonviUe nn the open- 
ing day, Tuesday afternoon, January 5!ltli, 
(.'ommittees were appointed to make ade- 
quate preparation, and the occasion was an- 
ticipated with keenest interest. 

The discussion of the approaching six- 
tieth anniversary of the College called forth 
impromptu addresses from Mrs. Eowe, Miss 
Weaver, Mrs. Laml^ert, Miss Osborne and 
others, and it was decided to hokl monthly 
meetings of the alumnae during the re- 
mainder of the school year that plans might 
1)6 evolved for the fitting observance of thi.s 
epoch marking anniversary in the life of our 
beloved Alma Mater, whose worth and dig- 
nity is now crowned witli three score years. 
The dainty refreshments served brought to 
end an afternoon of rare good fellowship, 
which strengthened the tie that binds us to 
dear old I. W. C. 

The Febritary meeting of the alumnae was 
held on Saint Valentine's day at the hos- 
pitable home of Mrs. Belle Short Lambert, 
and the program for alumnae day in com- 
mencement week was practically decided up- 
on. Some of the features are class reunions, 
and luncheons during the morning; busi- 
ness ajid program meeting during the after- 
iiiMin; dinner banquet at seven o'clock with 
toasts, greetings, college and society songs, 
ajid no end of ffood cheer. It is the inten- 

tion of the local alumnae to provide enter- 
tainment for visiting sisters, and to make the 
occasion one that no I. W. C. graduate or 
former student can afford to miss, for for- 
mer students are for this sixtieth anniver- 
sary to be invited to these exercises ou tho 
same footing as the aluiiinae. a privilege 
lU'ver before granted, and perhaps not soon 
again extended. 

A hajjjjy feature of the meeting was the 
adoption of a suggestion that $1,000 be 
raised as a memorial scholarship for Dr. 
Charles Adams, president of the College for 
a period of ten years, 1S58-18G8. Much en- 
tlm-iasm was shown and $100 of the amount 
was ]_)Iedged in a few minutes, and plans 
made to raise tlie entire sum within tliree 

It is hoped that this movement will re- 
sult in the raising of similar amounts to 
foujid other scholarships as memorials to 
fornuT presidents. Memliers of tlu^ alumnae 
expressed the belief that sucli memorials 
might be raised for President Jasques, the 
first president of the College, for Dr. De- 
-Motte, Dr. Short and Dr. Darker. The plan 
will be to solicit the money from the grad- 
uates in the classes irnder the regime of 
each president. The amounts thus raised 
may be credited to each class, and may also 
lie applied on the fund required to meet Mr. 
Carnegie's offer. 

ilrs. Jennie Kireman Ward and Mrs. 
Jjambert read extracts from a line inaugural 
address delivered by Dr. Adams in 1857, 
wdiich was highly apj)reciated by those pres- 
ent. After enjoying a fragrant cup of tea, 
the company dispersed until the March 
meeting, which will be held at the home of 
the Associate Alumnae Mrs. Marion Grier- 
son Capps. 

All alumnae or frieirds, who are willing to 
contribute toward the raising of these mem- 
orial scholarship funds, all who expect to 
come to the reunion during commencement 




weekj are requested to signify their interest 
and intention by writing to ilrs. l^rederie 
Eowe. A postal card iiotifieatinn will an- 
swer tlie imrpose. ami it i~ liojicd that every- 
one ti> whom this i-ii]iy id' The (-ireetings is 
sent will send inniiedialc i-oply.

Miss Edna Starkey, fonner president of

]ireciation of the several new pieces of ap- 
|)aialus the Association had jirovided for its 
mendiers this year, but nut withstanding 
these improvements there i> genei'al disap- 
pointment concerning the delayed new gym-

Mondaj", Feb. 11, Miss Flolmwood took a 
party of girls to visit the gymnasium classes 
at the Deaf Institution. Jliss .Mice Lus- 
condie is certainly doing good work, as is 
demonstrated l\v her classes. 

\Vhile the Juniors and Seniors were en- 
ioying themselves at the reception an ex- 
citing game of ba.sket ball was being played 
in the gymnasium between the Prep- and 
Specials. The score was 23 to S in favor of 
the Specials. 

By the small admission fee and sale of 
candy another five dollars was added to the 
new gymnasinm building fund. 

A feature of the Washington birthday 
party was an arrangement of a minuet, in 
which many of the regtdar fancy marching 
tigtires were used. A< the girls were cos- 
tumed in the colonial times the effect was 
\vx\ ijleasina;. 


The Seniors gave their annual recepti(ni 
to the Jitniors on Saturday evening, Feb- 
ruary 9th. The hostesses received their guests 
at eight o'clock, and after a few minutes" 
eon\ersation the guests in groups were 
shown to the society halls, where punch was 
served. When all had arrived, a card bear- 
ing the name of some prominent character 
of fiction, was given to each one. The part- 
ners for refreshments were determined by 
matching these cards. A delicious htneh 
was then served, everything being in Jitnior 
colors. After a social hour, the pleasure of 
which was increased by the mitsic of an or- 
chestra, the guests departed, feeling very 
grateful to the Seniors for so pleai^ant an 

'I'he Junior class is glad to announce Miss 
Neville as their class officer.

'riii.s niimljcr of tlie Gveetino-.-: is almo.'^t 
entirely .u'iven up to tlie mo.^t iniportaut 
event of tlio year, "The Dedieation of tlie 
(Jon-ervatory." The great erowil wliieh lis- 
tened to the dedicatory speeches nmst have 
felt the spirit of the day. Our College with 
its sixty years of history behind it and with 
its present achie^■enlents. will certainly have 
a glorious future. 

The "Greetings" extends its hearty wel- 
come to the alunmae j)aiii'r wliich is heing 

published, and feels sure that it will .accom- 
plish a great deal. Mrs Martha Capps 
Oliver is editor. 

The regular monthly meetings of the 
alumnae of the College have shown great 
interest. A full report of these meetings 
is given in the Alumnae report. 

In Afarcli we hope to send you "Greet- 
ings" from the art and music departments. 


It is certainly safe to say that every one 
is ha])py when we celebrate Washington's 
birthday. For several days the faculty have 
loeen secretly planning and working for this 
day. All the girls have to do, however, in 
preparation is to make costumes and try to 
look as pretty and colonial as possible. Af- 
ter the chapel service the following excellent 
jjrogram was given by the girls and all ac- 
quitted themselves with great credit: 

Essay — "A College Girl's Estimate of 
Washington"' — Janet Powell. 

Piano solo — Valse Brilliante — Bernice 

Colonial Letter,? — From John Hoskins, 
Boston, May, 1775 Bead by Emma Lattner. 

From Louise Jackson, Boston, 1TT5. Read 
by Eugenia Marshall. 

KeciTation— "The Old Flag"— (:41adys 

Vocal solo— "The Litany," "ily First 
Lovo" — Cora McClung. 

Recitation— "The Dandy Fifth"— Dess 

America — School. 

The afternoon was spent in preparing for 
the iiarty. A special Washington's birthday 
dinner was given at G o'clock. A long table 
in the center of the dining room accommo- 
dated the guests and faculty. Dainty little 



cheiTj' trees at the places rivaled the larger 
ones in the center of each table, and red, 
white and blue colors were everywhere. Af 
ter dinner came the grand march and the 
girls were scarcely recognized in the stately 
dames and courtly gentlemen filing up and 
down the halls.. Then we all went to the 
clia]K'l, where many surprises in the way of 
entertainment were in store for us. Edith 
Conley and Eosalie Sidell entertained us 
with the quaintest of old Engli.sli ballads. 
A violin quartette was then rendered by 
Misses Zefda Sidell, Myrtle Short, Nelly 
Smith and Bessie Eeed. Shadow pictures 
were given by Miss Johnston, Miss Austin, 
Miss Dawson and Jliss Page, illustrating the, 
"Mediaeval and Modern Ballad of i\Iary 
Jane."" This was very entertaining and 
caused a great deal of amusement. 

One of Booth Tarkington's farces, entitled 
"The Kisses of Marjorie," followed. The 
chief characters were Euby Evan as Captain 
J^awrence, Dess Mitchell as Marjorie Lan- 
sing, Gladys Maine as Mrs. Mellowes, Jen- 
nie Harker as Ensign Gay, and Cora JIc- 
Clung as Major McMurdy. The minuet 
given by four couples was very pretty and 
endefl a most delightfiTl program. Frappe 
was served and tlie remainder of the even- 
ing was pleasantly siient in singing and gen- 
eral merry making. 

In connection with tliis rejiort of Wash- 
ington's birthday we are glad to publish this 
little manuscript direct from Mouseland. 
The author of this, who signs herself N. T., 
"Jl, we will leave our friends to conjecture 


liast Friday evening, Feb. 32, just before 
dinner I heard a great noise coming from 
the second floor, main corridor. Hastily 
peeping out of mj' hole in the floor under 
the long; Ijench to learn the reason of all 

talk and laughter. I saw as strange a group 
of beings as these walls liave held in my 
time. N"o-i\- I"m aeeii.stomed to girls — my 
whiskers, yes — hut not such girls! And if 
1 could believe my eyes, there were men 
there, too — creatures of whom I know but 
little. Ijeing a Woman's College mouse. 
These men were dressed in cocked hats, sil- 
ver liuckled shoes and Ijlack silk coats 
trimmed in lace. Their hair, too, was most 
becomingly arranged. 1 was pleased to see 
that it was worn long, as men's hair should 
be worn. Now if only 1 had long hair — 
liut 1 shan"t parade personal grievances. 
Let us return to tbe gii'ls. As I have said 
before, they were not at all our ordinary 
girls, but as different as could be. They 
wore long, sweeping gowns made in queen 
styles. Their hair, too, was dressed in a 
\erv peculiar fashion — very high, and with 
one or two loose curls straying about. Some 
way the color was different. The heads of 
tlie entire assembly looked as mine did that 
day 1 accidentally toppled into the Hour 
liarrcl. And such a courtly crowd as they 
werel V\'hcn twd jiersons were presented 
they .sank nearly to the floor in elaborate, 
old-fashioned courtesies, the gentlenum 
kissing the lady's hand. Suddenly a bell 
rang, and each girl, catching up her train 
and taking the arm of licr escort, tripped 
away, leaving me to wonder if these could 
i)e our ordimiry, eveiwday girls, or if T had 
been asleep and dreaming. 


Boston, Mass., Colony, Dec. 30, i;;3. 
Mistress Polly Brent, Philadelphia, Pa. 

Dear Friend Polly: The post last week 
brought me no letter from you, for which I 
was sad, and wondered if anything ill had 
befallen you. ^ly head, however, is full of 
news ] would tell you if I could, but the 




jotirney is so long and dangerous in winter, 
1 must make these letters my comfort. 

^lotlier is well and sends greetings to you 
and to .Mr. and Mistress Brent. Father hatli 
been ill and the troublous times in Boston 
liave hindered his recovery. 

Before his illness, father gave iiic a new 
l)ook of ■'Pilgrim's Progress" with jiictures, 
the entire work by Boston printers. In it I 
find great delight. 1 am entered at Master 
Brownell's school for dancing tliis winter. 
This TJleases me much, for you have ever 
desired that T should learn, ifother hath 
])romised nie a yellow lu'ocade of the newest 
fasliion I'o]- my first ball and on my l)irthday 
falbei' will give me a new s|)innet. 

Since tlie riots, mother and I go no more 
to early market, which we regret exeeede- 
ingly, and having so much time we polish 
the pewter and silver uncomnionl^' much, 
and work caps and kerchiefs besides earing 
for father. My sampler, too, is now finished; 
it is made after the design mother liked 
liest — the one with a moss rose and "Rejoice 
and blossom as a rose" for the verse. 

Father and mother join with me in asking 
you to live with us next winter and go with 
me to j\Ii.stress Lucinda Morse's school for 
girls. Many Boston girls go there, for it is 
a i-iglit excellent school. 

Patches are still much worn in oui' town. 
and the new scent, ■'(^)iieen l'',lizal)etirs Per- 
fume," is nutch in demand. Also j\Iistress 
Goodnow, the manttia maker, halh received 
from England a doll dressed in the latest 
fasliion for ladies. This she shi>\\-s for fi\-e 

And the mention of (his brings nu' to the 
inijjortant things T sat down to wi'ile to you. 
The strife between these colonies and His 
Majesty's ministers you know, but nowhere 
is it so bitter as in Boston. His excellency. 
Governor Hutchinson, is too weak to rule 
this colony aright, but I dare not say it here 
for father thinks him the wisest a'overuor 

this colony hath had. The tax on tea rouses 
the people almost to rebellion, lor they con- 
sider it an unjust tax. 

The women have formed a society wliich 
tliey call "Daughters of Liherty." wherein 
they pledge themselves "■totidly to abstain 
from the use of tea" until their liherty is 
si-eiired. They drink ■"Liberty Tea." scnne- 
times called "Hyperion Tea." made of i-asp- 
lierry leaves. Father insists upon tea being 
served in (Uir house, hut 1 diinlv cliocolatt' 
as often as I am allowed. 

The boys of the Latin school Icive pledged 
themselves against the use of lea. and at tuiv 
Midlowe'en party when father eoinniaiuled 
me to pour the tea, the first boy to whom 1 
gave a cup refused, but father insisted, so 
he threw cup ajiil tea into the (ire and with 
school fellows left at once, Molher and 1 
regret it very much, but fathei' says tin 
young scamps assert themselves too niiu-h 
before their elders. 

The most serious event is the "tea party." 
of which I will tell yon. We have heard 
how, in your towii. the ships were sen( 
home, but here the Dartmouth, owned by 
Master Fraiicis lioteh, a (,)uakei', canu.' into 
port with tea. Tlu'U the "Libei'ty Tree" pa- 
triots held meetings at whieli the |)roniiiien( 
tneii spoke. The leadei's ai'e .lohii llaneock, 
Samuel and dohn .\dains. Master Copley and 
other esteenu'd (ownsmen who ti'V to bi'ing 
the jieople to reason in deneinding their 
rights, .lohn Adams, they say. is the ablest 
lawyer in Boston, and not so bigoted as 

.Xiglit bv night ineeiing> were held at tlu^ 
lireeii Dragon and secret meetings of Tories 
al old < 'f(Uu«-eirs Head Ta\efn. where your 
Lieutenant Washington stoj)]ied a d'w years 
ago. S(ill the authorities delayed and the 
]ieo])le protested, for when a ship hath been 
in harbor twenty days, by law, it must be 
iiidadened, and if necessary by military 



The last meeting was a town meeting on 
tiie niglit of the 16th inst., and on the mor- 
row tlie ship had to be relieved of its cargo. 
Messages were sent to His Excellency, who 
wonld not recognize the meeting. But at 
niglit men dressed as Indians boarded the 
ship and threw the tea into the bay. It is 
not known certainly who they were, tint "tis 
whispered that Master Paul Eevere hath a 
ivnowledge of tea making with salt water. 
Loyal subjects fear more trouble ahead. 
Loyalt}' to the king is claimed by all, but the 
ministers and parliament are blamed. 

jSIow, dear Polly, I want your reply by re- 
turn post. Give my respects to your father 
and mother and beg them to permit you to 
accept our invitation for next winter. 

1 remain, dear Polly, your loving friend, 
Prudence Gt)odricli, "U7.

The JaeksnnviHe Art Association met 
with iliss Knopf on Feb. 5 in the new 
stndio. Miss Knopf gave a talk on her 
summer's trip and sketches made at Ogun- 
qiiit, j\Iaine, under Charles H. Woodhiir]^, of 
Boston, and iliss Harker spoke on the work 
of the Nen- York School of Industrial Art. 

Many students are now in the tooled 
leathei' and poster classes under Miss Harker. 

One of the opening events of the new 
building for the College of Music and 
School of Fine Arts was an exhibition of 
pictures b}' Miss Knopf and applied arts b)' 
iliss Harker, which added considerablj^ to 
the spacious and altogether charming new 
studio v\-hich almost fills the npper floor. 
Yery attractive in size andi lighting as it is, 
the decorations and hangings in. a soft shade 
o| grey green add wonderfully to its beauty 
and everyone pronounces it the loveliest 
part of the new building. The catalogue of 
the exhibition had a cover design by Miss 
Knopf adapted from one of her sketches, of 
which there are some fifty-eight or so, all 
done in oil, pleasing and meritorious im- 
pressions of the charms of the Maine coast. 
Among the applied arts are some very ex- 
cellent designs by Miss Harker and also 
some fine examples of work in tooled leather 
and metal work. 


The Evanston Owl, one of our latest ex- 
changes, has a beautiful cover, and we are 
not disappointed with the contents. 

The literary department of the Lincoln- 
ian is very good for January, especially the 
essay on Castle Life in the Middle Ages. 

The Linden Hall Echo's editorials are 

good, but we would suggest a few stories 
and more of an exchange column. 

She — "What interested yon most in your 
travels, ^Fajin'?"" 

ilajor — ""Well, the mummy of a (]ueen I 
saw in Egypt. It's wonderful how they 
could make a woman dry up and stay that 

Teacher — Can you tell me how iron was 
<liscovered, Johnnie? 

■lohmiie — I heard pap say they smelt it. — 

■"There are eyes of Ijlne," sang the lover 
under the lady"s window. "There are Idack 
eyes, tiMi,"" hummed his rival as he turned 
the corner. — Ex. 

The Pacific Pharos has a very clever ex- 
change colum]i. It is not only interesting to 
the exchange editor, but to the casual 

The trnulile with most self-made men is 
that they did not try them.selves on before 
thev were finished. 

The annual play, "Mr. Bob," ^\'hich was 
given Feb. 11, ii\as a great success. The 
chapel was well filled and all who were pres- 
ent enjoyed the play very much. Elsie 
Fackt as Jenkins was especially good. Cora 
.Me('Iurg as Mr. Brown was very good, and 
also Oeorgia :\fetcalf as Patty. Mr. Boli was 
|)layed very well by Helen Lewi.s, and Kitty, 
her friend, was played equally well by 
G]ad\'s ]\Iaine. Eena Crnm made an excel- 


lent spiii>ter, and Edith Conlej' was a very 
pk'iisini;- nephew. After the play the- pos- 
ters were auctioned. Edna Starkey, our for- 
mer president, made an excellent auctioneer. 

A ,i;reat many of the girls who attended 
the play stayed for the regular meeting on 
Tuesday. A very excellent program was 
given and our visitors had many pleasing 
things to say about our work of this year. 

We were very glad to have with us last 
week Amelia Postel, Geneva Lard, Nellie 
Holnhack, Edna Starkey, and ilrs. Clara 
Lohr Cameron. We are always glad to have 
our former members with us, for it shows 
that they still have an interest in old 
Phi Nu.' 

i\[edora Postel is mueli improved in health 
and we are looking forward tci a visit from 
her in the near futitre. 

'J'he new and novel method of sending 
out jiostal cards to advertise the play pruved 
1(1 lie a very good one. 


The Elocution department has been doing 
excellent work this term. Several of the 
students have spoken at the private musical 
recitals. On Jan. 31, Miss Dess Mitchell 
gave "The Day of the Spank," which was 
very well received. Feb. 21, Hiss Gladys 
Maine read "Bobbie Shaftoe"" in her usual 
pleasing manner. Miss Cora McClurg on 
Feb. 28 gave "The Book Agent and the 
Bandit," and made a tremendous hit.

For some time before the Day of Prayer 
the Y. W. C. A. haa organized class and 
eoiridor prayer meetings. 

The Day of Prayer was observed as usual. 
M 10:30 o'clock the students and many 
friends met in the College chapel, where 
Rev. Nelson G. Lyons, pastor of First M. E. 
(Iiurch of Springlield, delivered his sermon 
on: "The Call of the Young People to 
Duty and Obedience." He referred to the 
tendency in modern life to let things go by 
and trust all would come out right without 
much personal eft'ort. He said that young 
people were apt to look upon life with dis- 
interestedness and that tliey did not feel the 
necessity of paying close attention to the 
trivial events of life which were of so much 
importance. The effects of such careless- 
ness would come out in later years when 
they were filling places of high honor and 
trust. The address was very good and in- 
structive. After the sermon the further ex- 
ercises closed with a prayer by Rev. W. H. 
ilusgrove of Brooklyn church. 

In the afternoon at 2:30 a praise and tes- 
timony meeting was held in the chapel, led 
b}' Dr. Harker. Many of the girls took part. 
Particularly did they speak of the spiritual 




growth which the}' had experienced throiigli 
obedience to Christ, and of desires to conse- 
crate their lives more fullv to Him. 


Tile ahimnae of the College are already 
planning to make the celebration of the six-

il(.Ti' KiiUak sat in liis stmlin. ini]iatiently 
awaitiiia' the arrival i>I his friend. Fri'deriek 
I>i)lz. ]t was a quarter after live, already 
titteen iiiiiuites past the hour of the aiipnint- 
nieiit. and 11 err KuUak. unaeeustomed to 
wait for others, was heeoniina' more nervous 
each minute. At last when the hands of the 
clock pointed to five-thirt}', a hurried step 
sounded on the stair. In another nnnute his 
friend hurst unceremoniously into the room 

"CTreat news,"" he shouted. "Her Muller 
is unahle to go to his duties in Eastern Ger- 
many and I have heen appointed his substi- 
tute for three months. You aj-e going with 
me and we will have a grand summer rest- 
ing from this horrid grind.'" 

"Imjjossible/"' said the elder man decided- 
ly. "It will do you no end of good, but me 
— well, it's absolutely out of the cjuestion." 

"0, come, this conservatory can easily 
manage without you for the summer. You 
see, I will most likely l)e stationed in some 
small village where communications with 
tlu' outside world are few. I'nless you come 
to cheer me up I will l)e back in a week. 
As my duties will not l)e burdensome, we 
will have opportunity to learn much of these 
people. You would derive enough inspira- 
tion to compose half a dozen operas." 

'■'iSrever mind the operas. Much as I 

should enjoy it, you surely can see for your- 
self, Ki'edei'ick. how absurd such an idea is,"" 
lejilied the dii'ei-tor a trifle impatiently. 

"■| see n<ithing of the sort,"" contradictiMl 
iiolz. "Of what advantage is it to you now 
ihai you haw ,-Iaved all the>e years, if now 
v\1kii you are independent and alile to do as 
you wish, you are burdened by youi' very im- 
])ortance? "When will you he liettev situated 
fiM- a vacation?"" 

"All that reasons \ery well yet, but 1 fear 
f v\ill not long be able to witlistand such a 
temptation. At least I will consider it. 
Yes, i I'eally Avill consi(h'r it. I)ear me. what 
if I should go!" 

".But we must start at once. Can you be 
ready in three da^'s?"" 

"Three days! "Well, I might l)e. Yes, I 
will be.'" 

And so, cjuite unexpectedly and as many 
thought foolishly, KuUak, the director of 
the largest conservatory in Berlin, without 
a week"s notice to his pupils, set out with his 
young friend. 

As Bolz had been taking some very diffi- 
cult scientific work for the last few months 
i;]id had had no vacation for some three 
years, he heartily welcomed this unlocked 
for rest. The two friends left early one 
morning and traveled rapidly to their des- 
tination. About .six in the evening they 
stepped from the train into the little village

"The greatest need of a college is not 
money, or students, hut friends. 

Because the AVoman's College has had 
friends^ heroic friend.s, who loxed it to the 
point of sacrifice and who would not be dis- 
couraged, it lives today, the ojily survivor of 
five schools for women founded b}' the 
Methodist church in the middle west, and 
the only school for women in Jacksonville 
now left where not many years ago there 
were three. 

'To the foundei's of the College in 18-17 

and to the many friends who stood by it, 
and saved it from deht, and rebuilt it again 
and auain after three fires from 1860 to 
ISV-',, ± have already paid tril)ute in another 
])lace. It they had not laboreil and given 
of their time and their means even beyond 
whal at times seeuied reasonable, the College 
rould not have lived to this day. Let us 
hiiuor their tnemory and appreciate their de- 

'the movement now Ijegun to establish 
[leiuianent endowment memorials of these 
Innnders and preservers is not only a Ijeauti- 
I'nl expression of appreciation, but it is emi- 
iieritly just and j'ight. The families and 
Irieuds of these early builders should see to 
it that their names ai'e permanently enrolled 
in the en.dowment funds of the College they 
bel})ed to foujid. 

But the College not only had friends 
many years ago — it has friends now, more 
friends than ever before. These friends 
lia\e made possible the recent remarkable 
de\elopment of tlie College jirojierty from a 
xahie of $(iO,000 eight years ago to a vahia- 
[ion of $250,000 now, from a small hoarding 
school for girls to one of the best foitnda- 
tions in the middle west for one of the great 
colleges for women whose establishment in 
the near future is one of the clearest signs 
of the times. 

The recent development really Ijegan in 
1S9T with the celebration of the fiftieth an- 
nixersary of the College. The former presi- 
dents and students came Ijack, and as they 
looked at what the College had already ae- 
Kunphshed, and saw the begiunings of a 
new life in its halls, and heard of the splen- 
did opportunities ahead, enthusiasm and de- 
teimination took possession of them, and 
they resolvecl to stand by the old College 
as never before. 

Five objects were especially desired at 
that time, an enlarged chapel and gymna- 
sium, an enlarged dining room, more room

These friends liave jjiven generously, not 
only once, but some ol' them time and again 
as each advance Ijecanie necessary. In addi- 
tion to their generous gifts several of these 
friends with some others have assisted by 
underwriting notes to borrow money as the 
necessities of the case demanded, thus mak- 
ing themselves directly responsil)le finan- 
cially for the outcome. Without sucli direct 
assumntion of financial responsibility on the 
pan of friends, the work could never have 
been accomjjlished, because it is a provision 
of the College cliai-ter and the settled policy 
of the lioard of trustees that the property of 
the College shall never lie mortgaged. Every 
financial responsiliility is a personal respon- 
^il)ility, and great credit is due to all who 
ha\e thus voluntarily sliared in these re- 

To all these friends who Imve thus assist- 
ed in the building of tlie College by gifts 
eitlier large or small. 1 wish to express on 
my own hehalE the sincerest thanks. In all 
the work and the planning during these 
years, there ]ia"\e been at times some heavy 
liurdens to liear and some ver_v anxious 
liours. Someiime^ tlie work and the re- 
sponsibilities ha\e seemed almost greater 
than I could licar. But when I have looked 
at the clearly indicated opportunity, when I 
have .seen how tlie good hand of our God has 
Ijeen in all the history of the College, and 
have felt so surely that He is leading us 
now, when I see the liundreds of interested 
friemls joining in the work, some to the ex- 
tent of sacrifice, I tliank God and take cour- 
age, and step forward very confidentl}^ to- 
wards the realization of the larger College 
which God gives me the vision to see. Foi 
] know that we are here laying the founda- 
tion for one of the great colleges for women 
in the central west. 

But the largest inspii'ation for the up- 
building of the AVoman's College has come 
from the generous donations of four women, 

whose gifts deserve sjiecial mention, lioth 
iiei-ause the}" were rhe largest ever made to 
the College, and also licause they came at 
nuist critical and opportune times. I desire 
to record my deepest appreciation of the 
help these women have gi\eii and to give 
])ul)lic expression of the honor wliich is their 

Mrs. Fannie B. Ilardtm-i' of Springfield, 
111., whose gift of $5,000, the largest ever 
made to the College up to that time, fur- 
nished the ins]nration for ihe liuilding of 
the .1;;j.j,000 front addition in liio-J. 

Miss Hannah C. Hever, of Laeon, 111. (de- 
ceased), whose bequest of a farm which 
iirouglit nearly Jj^l. "■>,()( 10 to the College, made 
po-sil)le the central heating, lighting and 
laundry jilant jti<l at the time when such a 
iilant wa< an ali<olute necessity. 

Mrs. 1). A. (Rachel Harris) l^hiUippe, of 
Champaign, III., and ]\Irs. l-hnma Sconce, of 
Sidell, 111., whose two gifts of .$5,000 each, 
were the largest factors in making possible 
ihe •$50,000 building for music and art in 


U each of these three times of crisis 
many friends by smaller and larger gifts. 
were furnishing fuel to keej) the fires of 
faitli burning, but it was tlu'<e largest gift^; 
that made the movements actually possible. 

The College is now again in the crisis <if 
opportunity. Eealizing that a College can- 
not be permanent without an eitdowment, 
Mr. .\ndrew Carnegie has generously offered 
to give $25,000 if the friends will give a like 
amount, and thus secure an endowment of 
$50,000. Again many friends are giving in 
smaller and larger amounts, and again these 
are keeping the fires of faith burning. But 
many of these friends have been giving con- 
tinitously for many 3rears. and cannot now 
give largely; and we are praying for other 
friends, for some who flill give larger 
amounts, and especially for some friends 
\vho will join the four women above men-

The letter read brielly: -Dear sir— En- days used often to talk of the need of bet- 
closed ynu will find the [latents giving title tei educational opportunities for young wo- 



men, and such a disposition of his land 
«-oiild ccrtainl}' have lieeii pleasing to him." 

An attorney was ealleil. the Xeliraslca hind 
was willed to tlie ilolluT dewell Home m 
N^ebrasi^a, some ot tlie -Missouri land was 
given to the ilarionville Collegiate Institute. 
and the Illinois i'aiin was liei[ueathed to the 
Illinois Woman's College. 

Now here was a remarkable thing. That 
a woman who had never seen tlie Woman'.s 
College, who knew no one eonnected with it 
who had never lieen solicited for a gift for 
it, should remember it in lier will: and that 
she should do this just at tlu' time that the 
College was in al)solute need ot a separate 
boiler and ]iower plant, ajid should give to 
the College the vei'v aiiionni needed to make 
possible a healing |ilan(. eleelric light ])lant 
and laundry adeipiate to the growing needs 
of the school. Otbei's may explain it as they 
will. Init the President cherises it as one of 
the clearest of many dii-ect answers he has 
received to his piayers in behalf of the Col- 
lege \\hieh be loves. 

In due time the College came into pos- 
session of the Dever farm, sold it at a good 
valuation and put the proceeds into the 
needed po\ver bouse, which has since saved 
to the College moi-e tlian •'f^l.OOO a year. 

The Illinois Woman's College cherishes 
the memory of Miss Hannah C. Dever as one 
of its greatest lienefactors and will honoi- 
her name as long as the College exists. 

The incident also forcibly illustrates the 
great good done to tlie College by the min- 
istry of the chureli jjapers. To the Central 
Christian Advocate, the W(minn's College is 
directl}' indebted for (he l>ever lie(|iu'st. and 
until the iioolcs are opened we can ne\'er 
know how many other helps have come 
tlirough the Advocate and other periodicals 
of the church, always i-eady as they are to 
give space to College news. 

The College now again has a great oppor- 
tunity and a great need. Eealizing that a 

College cannot he jiermanent without an en- 
d.owment, ilr. Andi'cw Carnegie generously 
olfers to give $-25.(l(>i» if tlie friends will 
give a like amount and thus secure an en- 
dowment of -SoO.OOO. We are looking and 
praying for some friend or friends who will 
help us meet our ojijiortunity.

I mr must vital interest at |ii-esenl i< the 
new himie of miisii- ami art — the Iniilding ol' 
wliieh Villi ha\c heard ^n nl'trii ihiring the 
past year. 

.Miisie lirings a sense of the inlinite. 
Selielling, tile (iei' philnsupher, says that 
the supreme t,isk nf the .■irti<l is tlial of en- 

dea\iiring to represent the infinite under a 
Unite rnrm. "■\\'hiie\ i/r siieeeeds in aeenm- 
I'lishiiig this," he said, "ha- risen tn the true 
idea 111' the lieautil'iil.'" 

Hi> thought i- also expre^-ed hy the poet: 
■' "'['was Seliumai.i's Sung ol' Moonlight: ii"er

1 hr new moon lingered near the western 

Ihe hearth fire glimnn'red low; hut melting 

Blotted all else from memory and from 

.\nil all the world was niusiel" 

iJusii- is often called a universal 1,-inguage. 
The ap]iarent love fur miisie whii-h is de- 
velojiing on every hand is suhjeet matter 
for hearty eouLiratiilation to those who love 
this nohlest of true arts. 

'1 liere is alnindant l'^■idenee that music of 
a su]ierior onU'r is welri'iiied and enjoyed liy 
many who have no teeliuieal k'uowledge of 
rhe art. ]\Iusie is for all; not for a favored 
few. !f one has a willingiU'ss. he can ac- 
(piire enough from inusie to enriidi and 
iieaiitify his life. 

So long i;s music wa> regarded as an un- 
manly art it was n.-itural that the manliest 
anil mo-t amhitious men should devote 
themsi'lves to other oeeupations. Those who 
are so unfortunate as not to ajipreeiate music 
and art in their dee[i signilieanee tii human 
emotien have "eyes to see and see noi. and 
ha\e ears to hear and hear not."" 

(iiie prominent artist says that not only is 
file artisan erasing to know heauty. hut he 
is ceasing to work with hi~ hands at all. 

We depend largely for our knowledge of 
■;neicnt races ujton what they have left he- 
liind ol' art. Those with artistic feeling were 
inspin'd to de]iict something of their life or 
to chrnniele the natiiin"s great events in that 
way. The demand for art. the craving for 
the lieautil'iil is rooted and grounded in the 
dee|a',-i centers of our lieiiig. The farmer 



admire^: a straight rurri>'\\-: tlie artist is tilled 
with uiisjieakalilc joy when something Ijeau- 
tifnl lias eonie Fi'Dni his lirain and heart by 
means of his hands. 

Artists are not forgotten, they are the 
teachers of the people. We are coming more 
and more to realize what a helpful influence 
ai't a.s well as nuisie has over the hnman 
race. For that reason onr attention is being 
directed to these things more tlian ever Ije- 
fore and plans are lieing developed for the 
general instnietion of the people in that 
wliicli is so inspiring and u])litting. 


'rhe e^er increasing demand in, onr conn- 
li'\- today Tor beautiful olijects of indi\idual 
desigUf. and l)eautiful objects of all kinds. 
has led to the great revival of the Arts and 
Crafts movement. In order to meet the pnl> 
lic demand for better turnitun^ better pot- 
tery and more plea-^ing olijects of all sort- 
for daily use in tlie home, tlie art seliools all 
over the country lia\e ailded sncli classes as 
metal work, pottery, book binding, leather 
tooling and designs. 

Courses in design are much more practical 
than they wen- several years ago. Xow tlie 
student makes his design and then executes 
it with his own hand in the material best 
adapted for it. .\ good course in design is 
of untold benefit to a student. Wlietlier or 
not he applies his designs with his own 
hands, a knowledge of the theory of design 
lieljis him to appreciate the good things in 
all decoration. Tie learns the harmony of 
colors (w'Onld that cAcry one knew it) and 
the beauty and symmetry of form. In house- 
decoration a knowledge of design is most 
practical, and saves unharmonious effects 
and even expense. There is no excuse for 
gaudy, flimsy and ugly ornaments, and even 
the humble objects of daily use can as well 

be of harmonious and simple lines as of 
ugly and unpleasaiil ones. 

A ureal aih'anee has been made in the 
ivork in the pulilic schools. The great edu- 
cators of the country have liegun t<i realize 
that the beauty and utility of the liomes of 
the future, depends on the training of the 
children. The result has been the estalilish- 
luent of manual training courses in the of all the large cities. And not only 
aie the children taught to put together fur- 
niture, but they also design it, and learn the 
value of good lines and proportions. Basketry, 
weaving, wood carving, wrought iron, and 
metal work are all a part of the course. Nat- 
urally this advance in the public school s}'*- 
tem calls for more and better trained teach- 
I'rs. Students are beginning to realize this, 
and after they have accjuired a good aca- 
demic training, they take up the industrial 
arts. There is no doubt but tliat a good 
student, after s])endiiig several years in 
learning the crafts, will lie able to find an 
opening, either in teaching, or if be has a 
marked talent for design, he would execute 
his own designs and find a ready market for 

It is only in bannony with the progress 
of the Woman's College in all departments 
that the Art l)e|iartnient has added this 
vear. courses in design, metal ami leather 
work. A great many students have taken 
advantage of these courses, and the classes 
in leather work and ]ioner designing are es- 
pecially popular. A marked improvement 
has been noticed in the posters which have 
been made lately, for the society plays, Y. 
W. C. A., and sales. There is no doni.t but 
that these classes in design w\\\ continue to 
gro\^' in popularity.

Certain ly]".'s I if ]ii'ople are to be cnm-

llespcrides. Even with great perseverance 
the\' are nnly to lie seen over a wall anil 
there seein.s to be no second Hercnles to win 
the prize for this age. Perhaps it would not 
l)e beneficial to us to bave people too closely 
analyzed. Jt would be lioth helpful and dis- 
couraging. Tlie average spectator is indeed 
fortunate if his views of life tend to develop 
his sense of humor instead of making him 
pessimistic. Do we care for the comments 
of an onlooker who sees only the dark side 
of every question? "VVe think a spectator 
shoiild have lived such a busj' life entering 
into most of its activities that he would 
properly appreciate its ups and downs. It 
seems very often that it is the man who 
practically knows nothing of life that be- 
wails the evils of tliis age and tells the 1iig- 
gest hard luck story. 

The rational comments of a clever specta- 
tor are thoroughly enjoyed. Through his 
eyes are seen the representatives of tyjjes in 
foreign countries. In London while sitting 
on one of the Row benches on any Sunday 
morning the modern church-going English- 
man, almost dudish in his frock coat with its 
chysanthenmm boutonniere and silk hat, 

may lie seen stalking his way to High 
(.'burcli, aiciinipaiiied liy his liaughtj', cold- 
featured wile, dressed ^\itli tjie u.*ual Eng- 
lish taste. I'p and duwii the Row the cab- 
drivers, members of the cockney class, call 
to each other in their queer Jargon, making 
the spectator imagine himself in a far east- 
ern country. Ihen a family of eostermon- 
ger.-^ passes by. At every house the woman 
jumps out of the wagon to advertise her fish 
or vegetables while the man holds tlie horse. 
Tile wiunan of that class usually wears a 
sailor hat, a once white shirt waist, dark 
skirt and a piece of brown fur about her 

In Paris the spectator is introduced to 
many humorous scenes. The five-foot French 
beau saunters about from tea room to cafe 
more interested in his tiny waxed moustache 
and cravat than in anything else in the 
world, perfectly content to let the mort- 
gaged estates of his ancestors pay his tailor's 
bill and furnish him ^rith all the luxuries 
demanded by the so-called French gentle- 
man. It seems such a shame that the 
French girl, totall}' "ignorant as she is of the 
men of other nations, should be forced by 
French customs to marry this sort of speci- 
men of French aristocracy. Even the cafe 
de^'otees, men and women, seem to have no 
purpose but that of loafing with congenial

her experience, the influence of which has 
lieli>e(l to make lier what she is today. 

"Despise not tlie day of small things" is 
a wholesome injunction. Tlie small natur- 
Lirally precedes the larger — the incomplete 
antedates the complete. Every stroke of 
tlie artists' tool tells in developing the fin- 
ished work from the rough material. There 
was a time \\heii you,, stalwart man, y(ni 
coTirtly matron, were an infant, a child, a 
youth: yet for all the e\idenees these facts 
alTord of }'our one time deficiencies you are 
none the less the man, the woman you are 
today. Xay, more, these conditions have 
heen not merely passive states or stages in 
your life, hut at'tivi' effective periods in the 
processes ot de\elo}inient and education. 
You could not have lieconie what you are 
without them. The same features and 
general characteristics have maintained 
throughoul, the iudi\ idniility has been pre- 
served and y(Uir present self is the product 
of continuous intluences and agencies. 

Character is a growth. Personality is a 
product of time and clfect. The "Tllinois 
Conference Female Seminary" and the 
"Illinois Female College" were the progres- 
sive stages through which this institution 
has passed to reach its present state of more 
mature and coni]ilete qualifications, entitling 
it to the broader name of Illinois Woman's 
College. "While we look with pride upon 
her presejit state we seize this opportunity 
to suggest a fair recognition of the workmen; 
their work of the past and tlieir efficiency 
in promoting the successes of the more re- 
cent years. 

The College has never lacked for earnest 
supporters and workers. It is for all now^ 
predecessors and present incumbents — to 
merge our resources and join our prayers for 
still greater advances in coming years. In 
every period of its life there have been con- 
nected with it men and women in all 

capacities whose hearts were timely touched 
and whose jilanning and providings were 
divinely guided towards the sjiiritual wel- 
fare of those who came under their inllu- 
ence. and the record wWl show gratifying 
results. It is these especially the former 
teacher and student gratefully remembers 
and gladly recalls. We are confident that 
no'i\' in her advanced position and with in- 
creased facilities we shall see this feature 
of the College work more emphasized than 
heretofore and its results be ]iroiiortionatcly 
wider and deeper. 


Changes have crept iniperc('|itibly over 
our colleges wiihin the last fifty years. The 
de.-ign of this article is to mite only those 
exti'rnal changes in material things which 
are of minor importance and have been 
su]ier.<eded by others which will in turn dis- 
ap]iear hefore those as transient. While 
familiar with other college, the writer was 
intimately associated with Dicksinson Col- 
lege, I'enn.syhauia, from 1851 to 1868. 
This is not the oldest Methodist College, but 
it is the oldest college in Methodism, hav- 
ing been founded by the patriot statesman, 
itohn Dickinson, in 1873. It was sold to 
the Methodist Church in 1833 by the Pres- 
hyterians. Both the fnctulty and Alumni 
of this college number many illustrious 
names in their lists, jiames well kjiown in 
church and state. 

Located in the famous Cumlierland Val- 
ley, the beautiful natural scenery and fine 
climate, rendered it one of the most at- 
tractive and popular resorts of the church. 
During the years mentioned primitive 
habits still obtained — College prayers were 
held at 6 o'clock A. M. As the college

Forunately the bountiful supper, fur- keeping ]iace \\itli oi' in advance of the 

iiished by the president at his levee fifty times. 



The changes are lieyond the scope of this 
article and would re(iiiin> such a profound 
and lengthy setting forth as could lie made 
only by one learned and experienced in the 
college curriculum of today. 

"While these more important changes have 
come without observation, they have never- 
theless been revolutionary and complete. 
There were great intellects and great learn- 
ing fifty years ago in our colleges — men 
whose fame will last. And in their atmos- 
phere, (h\'elt women of vigorous ciitlure, 
charming and devout. In these there has 
been no other changes than what the in- 
evitable advance of ideas fringes. There 
were great then and are great now. Strong 
and lovely womeji were their companions 
then and lireathing the same mental aspmos- 
phcre are sucli companions now. The 
spirit of active scientific research and inves- 
tigation has had its iiatural result in pro- 
found changes in the curriculum of our col- 
Jeges compared witli which the superficial 
changes 1 liave mentioned are as nothing. 


If it were necessary one could give valid 
reasons for the fact that the College has al- 
ways been blessed with good visitors, such as 
jjroved to l)e ajigels — good angels — though 
entertained at times unawares. 

I reHiend>er one morning meeting Brother 
Foster, who told me they were expecting 
Eev. John S. Tnsl'cip and wife, and William 
McDonald for a series of evangelistic serv- 
ices; and as yet had not been able to find 
suitable lodgings for them and asked if we 
af the college coiild take them in for a few 
days till other arrangements could be made. 
1 went at once to the station, brought them 
up, and thej'' were with us for six weeks to 
the great advantage of all. 

Dr. W. H. Milburn, the "iDlind man elo- 
cjuent."' for many years our neighbor across 

the street, was a fretpient visitor. He was 
a great conversationalist — well educated, of 
wide and peculiar experiences, full of anec- 
dotes and ready in wit and hujuor. Teach- 
ers and students never wearied in listening 
to him. 

Ihen there was Dr. Peter Akers, onr 
neighbor on the south, a man of very differ- 
ent style liut not theref(n-e the less enter- 
taining. He was a man of unusual depth 
and breadth of intellectual and spiritual cul- 
ture, one who carried with him a l)roaclen- 
ing and lilting inlluence u[ion those whom 
he met. 

One forenoon the call to chapel was 
mounded al an unusual hour, and with curi- 
osity as to tlic cause all were soon seated to 
receive ^Ir. A. Bronson Alcott, the Concord 
]ihilosopher. After a moment's eonsultatiou 
as to what lie should talk nliout some one 
suggested the interest we all felt in his 
daughter, Miss Louisa. ^1. Alcott, then pro- 
ducing some of her best work. In his 
fatherly affection and pride he readily ac- 
ceded to this proposition and for an hour 
he talked quietly and entertainingly of Miss 
Louisa's trials and successes. 

During the winter of '68, as we were go- 
ing into chapel for regular morning service, 
I noticed three young men coming up the 
walk. Meeti]ig ihem at the door I recog- 
nized the leader as Dr. 1'. G. Gillette, super- 
intendent of the Institule for the Deaf, who 
introduced me to ilr. Wm. Reynolds, of 
Peoria, and ^Ir. Dwiglit L. Moody, of Chi- 
cago — men very different in personal ap- 
jiearance. Reynolds was a six foot speci- 
men of jierfect masculine physique, blonde 
and smiling, while Moody was short, square 
shouldered with a wealth of black hair. I 
suggested that one of them lead the exer- 
cises. Dr. Gillett said "0, I'm at home 
here," and Mr. Moody said "No, no, the 
thought of facing all these, young women is 
frig-htful. You're the man, Reynolds, go on.

a beautiful Aria from the Elijah. 

Miss Bess Morgan gave her Senior piano 
recital April IL A beautiful program was 
very excellently rendered. 

Cnder the direction of the Mendelssohn 
Club "St. Paul" was given in the Music 
Hall Tuesday evening, April 30. Mr. 
Stead certainly has reason to feel proud of 
the splendid rendition, by the chorus. The 
soloists were Mrs. Helen Brown Read, Miss 
Edna Hatch of our own factultv and Mr. 

John B. ililler of Chicago, tenor, and Mr. 
Marion Green of Chicago, bass, iliss Myrtle 
Larimore and ^liss Widenham were the 
pianists. An orchestra of twelve pieces led 
liy Mr. Stafford assisted the chorus. 

Eoui- years ago at the, organization of the 
club ^li'. Stead announced his intention to 
give four great oratorios and Tuesday, April 
3(1, witnessed the completion of this plan, 
as the "Creation," the "Messiah" "and the 
"Elijali"" have been given in the three 
previous years, ilr. Stead and those who 
liave taken part in any way in the rendition 
of tlrese master pieces of music should take 
great credit for the artistic way in which 
they liave presented tltem. By many the 
work of last evening was considered the 
most liiiislu'd of all. ilrs. Eead sang the 
diilicult soprano parts in her usual effective 
way and Miss Hatcli gave especially well 
the solo. "But the Lorcl Is Mindful of His 
Own." All were delighted with the work 
of Messrs. ililier and Green. 


Some of the beautiful roses which Mr. 
Hem] sent to tlie College were used to make 
a couple of very attractive studies this 

Cencvra Brown. Pauline Keenan, Sadie 
Tdolit and Helen Lam1)ert have recently 
l)iised for the sketch classes. 

It will soon be the time for the Spring ex- 
liibition. This one will be the first given in 
the new studio. 

Tlie posters for the Belles Lettres play, 
made under iiiss Harker, attracted a great 
deal of attention. They were unusually 
prett}^ and cleverly designed. 

Miss Knopf spent last Saturday and Sun- 
day in Chicago. Miss Harker conducted 
her classes during her absence. 

The term studio spread will be an attrac- 
tive feature within the next week or two.

The (•(uiiineiicement extTci.-^es in cunncf- 
tion witli the .■sixtieth anniversiiry were held 
in the .MusJe Hall Wednesda}' morning. Ma}- 
29. Everything was favorable and the long 
procession lead by the girls as they sang the 
college song was very impressive. A piano 
niunjjer by Miss Louise Buckingham and 
Prof. Stead was lieard with pleasure. Presi- 
dent Barker next introduced Itev. T. P. 
Erost, D. D. of the First ^\. E. 
church of Evanston, who delivered the com- 
mencement address. Dr. Erost said, in part: 
"In addressing you on this notable occasion 
hallowed by the precious memories of three 
score years and by the prospect of the fu- 
ture, 1 am aware that I stand at the conjunc- 
tion of honor and opportunity. The ending 
of one thing always means the beginning of 
anotlier. I prefer to think' of the commence- 
ment season not as being the end of things, 
but as the beginning of imijortant events. 
The joys of recollection are not known ver\' 
much to young graduates, for those things 
will come later and assert themselves, and 
will relieve drudgery and drive away care. 
r would have you remember that there can 
be no great advancement without some 
drudgery. When these students look back 
to this and other school days they will say 
it was good to be there, and yet believe that 
a score of years from now these graduates 
will say 'it is better to be here.' To-day we 
do not talk of the good old times and wish 
they were back. We coulcT review to-day 
bad old times which are in history not far 

distant in various countries, including our 
ii\\n. \\'e should sing the doxology every 
diiy hccause the times are really better, al- 
ihdngli we must liear in mind that tlie best 
tiiiies have not yet ai'rivcd. and we can still 
look lorwaid to the tinies when all men 
shall he dealt witli justly and the spirit of 
bioiherl}- love shall pre\'ail."" He spoke of 
the dilferent lines ol' work tliat the grad- 
uates might take up in tills day, l)ut em- 
phasized es])ecially that rlie work of to-day 
iiiust lie (.lone by rendering ministries to 
thiise \\ho need them. If we do not make 
ourselves native of the kingdom of the eter- 
nal, life is not worth living."" He closed his 
address by saying: "So the best I can wish 
you graduates is that you may enjoy those 
things which are from the heart and which 
are the same yesterday', to-day and forever, 
and never, never pass away."' 

After the adrdess iliss'Mable Matthews 
sang the "Song of Magdalene," by Ivrienzel. 

l\liss Weaver, dean of the College, then 
jiresented the literary graduates in the sev- 
eral courses to Dr. Harker, who awarded 
the diplomas. Prof. Stead then presented 
the candidates for di]:ilomas for musical 
work. The girls graduating in the different 
courses are as folows: 

C'lassical course — Miss Olive Ainsworth, 
Watseka, and Miss Esther Asplund, Little 

Latin scientific course — Miss Eunice Hop- 
per and Miss Olive Huss, both of Jackson- 
ville, 111. 

Pianoforte — Miss Hortense Campbell, Ma- 
rion: :\liss Mabel Euller, Easton; Clara Mc- 



Cime, Ed wards ville; Bessie Morgan, Mur- 
dock, and lio.saiie Sidell, Indianola.

Larimore, both of Jacksonville, 111. 

i'ost gi'adiiiite course in piauoi'orte- 
Gej'liaide Tliack^'ra}', Griggsville. 




AlJter presenting tlio diplomas President 
Marker addressed the audience and spoke oi 
the steady growth made by the College dur- 
ing the past I'durteen years. He said that 
each term nt the twenty had shown an im- 
provement o\er tlie one before. He spoke 
of the harmony of the faculty and said that 
Miss Lula Hay had been secured as an addi- 
tion to the faculty of the College of Music. 
i'l'csideul ibii'kci' then iiiciil ioiied six points 
loi- which he ihoughl the sixtieth anuiver- 
sary would long l)c I'cnu'iHhci'ed. lie gave 
them a> follows:

ever made to the College property and 
makes the College in its special department 
one 'of tlie best equipped colleges for women 
in the middle west.

course to the full collegiate standard. 

l-'iflli. Another event making this year 
memoiable is the great sixtieth anniversary

r>accahnireate services for the graduating 
class of the Illinois ^Vmnau's College were 
held at Ceiitenai'v .Methodist chui'cb Sunday 
e\eniiig. May Vli. Cracc chui'ch and Brook- 
lyn eliiiich uniled with Centmiai'v in Ihe 
service. The baccalaui'eale sei'nion was de- 
liviacd by i;e>. Merle X. pastor of 
V'eiilenaiy. .\flei- a brief expressicui of his 
a|i|ircciMl i(m of the junior confci'red u])on 
him by the class in asking him to address 
tlu'in. .Mr. Knglish announced his theme as 
ihe "Andiitecture of Life." llu' text being 
IViuud in the First Cm'inlhians. three, nine, 
"Ye are God's building." 

"Human life may be likened to a struc- 
ture, n so, there is an architecture of life. 
The greater the idea we try to express the 
more are we compelled to use figures. And 
the greater the idea the less completely does 



an}' single tigure express the full truth. 01 
man}' corresponilenees that exist between life 
and the arehiteetui-al produet, but a few 
could be mentioned. 

"The principles of architecture are the 
princiijles of life. A study of art in any of 
its form is most instructive. For it is 
througli his creations in stone and steel, on 
the canvass, in tlie nuirble, in the harmon- 
izing of soimd, that man's conception of the 
beautiful is expressed. Each is a window 
through wliicli we may look into llie soul of 
man. Each form of art has its own princi- 
ples of interpretation. 

''ArcJiitecture comes under the law of util- 
ity. It is use that gives rise to the archi- 
tectuial product. Tire three ends are pro- 
tection, transit and memorial. The first is 
the more complex, consequently best suited 
to represent the structure of a life. In pro- 
tective arcliitecture beauty as ordinarily un- 
(k-rstond is not the cJiief end, but utility. It 
may \>r beautiful, but it must lie useful if it 
is to be perfect. 

"In the perfect structure tliere must be a 
recognition of tbe principles of proportion. 
Each part (if (uir threefold constitution, 
pliysical, mental and spiritual, must receive 
its riglitful care, proportionately to its im- 
portance. To be perfect you must be high- 
est in that which is loftiest. 

"Through these college days you have 
been rearing the arch of yoitr life. Its pil- 
lars are knowledge and character. Its key- 
stone is service." 

Tire speaker placed especial emphasis on 
the keystone. "Without this the arch is not 
complete and the pillars are useless. But 
when these pillars of knowledge and char- 
acter are united by the keystone of service 
the arch is comjdete. Xow the office of the 
arch is to hear a burden. It was the effort 
of the architect to find a means by which 
a wide space could be bridged in such a way 
as to hear a great burden above the opening 
that produced the arch. Your arch must 
bear a burden. In proportion as you bear 
humanty's burden will (iod's purpose for 
you be fulfilled. 

'Tn the rearing of your life structure you 
cannot take too literally Paul's declaration 
that Christ is the foundation. The mate- 
rials of a noble structure are all about you. 
The -H'orld is a vast quarry from whence you 

may gather the material for your structure. 
Eacli is a master builder. . We are all will- 
ing to plan and dream and build our castles 
in the air. But many are not willing to 
carry the hod. This we must do. Get your 
insjnration from the fact that your building 
is to be the dwelling place of the J\Iost High 
0(1(1. He comes down from the stars to 
t\\Yi']\ in the lives of men, Paul begins by 
saying: 'Ye are God's luiilding.' He ends 
liy sa\'ing, "Ye are temple of God.' 

Your college days have pitt you in pos- 
session of the highest ideas of life. May 
(rod give yoit the genius of the artist. May 
the beauty of the Lord our (bid lie upon you 
and may He establish tlie wmk- of your 
hands. So lunld that when tlie world be- 
hold^ youi' cmiipleted structure it will say, 
'Behold llu- tabernacle of Ood is among 
men.' " 


"i'oting Women of the Graduating Class: 
After the inspiring sermon to which you 
have just listened, it is not neces.sary that I 
dioiild make you a long address. But I al- 
ways rejoice in the privilege of the final 
word, as each class comes up to the com- 
mencement occasion, and I always endeavor 
to improve the opportunity, not by teacliing 
a new lesson, but by enforcing and empha- 
sizing some vital principles, which it has 
lieen our aim to impart to you throughout 
your college life. 

It always seems strange, on first thought, 
that the closing of your college life should 
be called your "Commencement," But there 
is really a great propriety in the word, and a 
deep pliilosophy underlying its use in this 

Tlicre is as yet, indeed there never will be. 
a final end of anything. We come to ends 
of days, or of periods; we reach the end of 
a school year, or of a school course; or of an 
enterprise on which our hearts are set. But 
in truth, the end of any sttch day or period, 
or year, or course is at the same time the 
beginning of another. And the most import- 
ant fact is not that of the ending, but that 
of the beginning. 

The whole philosophy of a noble life is 
in-^'olved in this truth. To see only the end- 



ing in any ewnt or ])eriod in 3'our lives, 
nicaii^ tci ccisc aetion, to smother inspira- 
tion, and In lie satisfied with j)resent attain- 
iiR']it. Neai-ly all tile Failures of college

giiniing."" Thoy iliauked (iod that they had 
now rrncluMl tile ""ending,"" and they settled 
down to eiijoyineiit of the past, as though 
the whole matter were completed. 

Mill foi- you. young women, let it not he 
so. jjook upon tliis ending of y(mr college 
course as ill reality the heginning of a lil'e 
ol larger opportunity. You have Ijeen faith- 
ful o\er a few things, let the blaster now he 
Iree to make you ruler over more. Face the 

'"Seek- the things liel'ore you, not a look lie- 
■"Set \oiir wdiole heart to endeavor, 
'I'lirn your soul lo yon bright star.'" 

ii >ure|y is no mere conicidence that the 
1irst \\<u'ds' of the ilihle are: 

■"In the heginning, Uod." 

'Ihe-i' are the words 1 want to impress on 
you. This is a great beginning for yon. You 
will {-011111 most of the events of yonr life 
from this date. In this beginning be sure, 
al)o\(' all other tilings, that He is with you. 
^'ou are rightly counting on many factors 
for success ill life. You have youth, and 
he.tlth. and ti'ained ability. Y'ou have 
li-icnd>. ^'ou lia\e ambition and determina- 
ii(Ui ami pei'se\ crauce. All good, very good. 
Tliese arc. each of them, a key that will un-

l')Ut let nic tell \-ou. viuiug w-oiuell. there is 
(Uie MasliM- Key <d' life, that of itself will un- 
lock t'\('i'y door lliat ymi will e\-er need to 
o|ieii. and that Master Key is. tlie conscious 
pre^'iiee of God Himself in every detail of 
your daily Ii fe. 

.\s this is the lirst truth uttered in God's 
lie\-el.-il ion to us. so it is the central trutli 
illustrated on every page, from Genesis to 
i'e\ida!ion. Vou lia\'e just been reading the 
story id' Joseph. What was the secret of -his 
success? Again and again the answer comes 
— "The liOrd was with Joseph."" And so He 
has been with all whose lives have been 
worthy, in all the generations. And when 
our Savior sends out his disciples with the 
great commission to go into all the world 
and open every door of opportirnify for the 

complete salvation of every creature. Ho 
puts into their hands this same Master 
l\ey — 

■"Lo. 1 am wit h you always." 

'I his is the ureatest li-ulli of human life. 
Without told y(Ui can do nothing. "Kxcept 
tile Lord hiiild the house, they lahor in vain 
that liiiild it." I'>ut with him. like Paul, you 
can do all I liings. 

.\nd the lesson of all others we have lieen 
trying tip teach you in yours years at the

tiiitli that God's conscious jiersonal ]iresence 
ill your daily life is ymw possibility and 
|u-i\ liege, ^'ou can lia\e this "Master Key" 
for the asking. 

Let us all, here and now. both you and 1 
together, eiunmit our way unto Llim. and ask 
Ilim to walk with us e\-er\- step of tlie w-liole

England gave no greater son to the world 
in the nineteenth centnrj^ than John Eus- 
kiu. "Could Euskin's gift to men measure up 
to that of Tennyson?" some one asks. "To 
the busy world, yes:' Tennyson. sang to the 
Auorld of high ideals, but Kuskin gave up his 
strength, his fortune, his chosen career to 
the effort to help common men at the level 
of their common lives. 

We must be a^uire, from the very outset, 
that in John Euskin we are dealing with a 
strilcing personality, as well as with a great 
life work — but half-guessed, but half appre- 
ciated even today. Euskin is a man who has 
dared to live his thoughts, says Charles 
Waklstein. There is hardly a figure in the 
history of contemporary thought in Eng- 
Jand, the intellectual and social influence of 
\\-hich it is so difficult to gauge. 

Euskin was one of the great lienefactors of 
mankind, but as- his views were far ahead of 
his time, he was very generally misunder- 
stood, and frequently reviled. Like the 
prophets of old, this Prophet of Brantwood 
spoke words of bitter truth which the world 
was not yet ready to receive, and indeed he 
was a prophet, this clear-seeing, clear-think- 
ing teller of the truth. Untouched by greed, 
he truly lamented that the world is so given 
over to the worsliip of money and with gen- 
uine sorrow 

"He saw in ways of men God's order neutral- 

Confusion mocking poet's dream of law. 
Love scorned, the power of wealth misused, 
unduly prized. 

One man before another bent in awe." 

There are many important questions to be 
considered before we can justly estimate 
Euskin or his work in regard to economic 
problems. What manner of man was he? 
ilay not Euskin's relation to modern ques- 
tions of economics be considered almost that 
nf an inspired prophet? One cannot read 
Euskin's lectures on labor without feeling 
lliat he foresaw conditions that we find in 
our own country todaj-, where the ever- 
widening breach between capital and labor 
is a constant menace to our prosperity and 
national life. He condemned any antagon- 
istic attitude to employe toward employer 
when he said: "Every man should do good 

work for his bread and everj^ man should 
have good bread for his work." Justice and 
work vs ere his elemental principles. 

In one of his lectures on work he said: "It 
is tJie privilege of a good worlnnan to be 
chosen." If this thought could be impressed 
upon tlie minds of our American workmen, 
llie unskilled man would have to become 
skilled in order to be chosen, and there 
would be no strikes when the employer re- 
Juses to pay high wages to incapable work- 
men ^^lio demand wages just because thej' 
belong to a union. Euskin's three great 
principles of reform, advanced in his writ- 
ings on political econom_y, should answer for 
us tJio question of his relation, profitable or 
otherwise, to modern reform. These are, 
first: "Every child should be taught some 
trade or calling." 'What is the greatest aim 
of practical educators in America to-day? In- 
dustrial instruction in the school. Millions 
are spent each year to establish and main- 
tain -work in the various practical arts and 

Second. "Those who would work if tliey 
could, to be taught; those who could work 
if they would to be set to penal labor." This 
jninciple is neither new nor unheeded in our 
country as the great "social settlement" ef- 
forts prove. 

Third. "For the old and destitute com- 
fort and home to be provided." 

The principles belong to Euskin's polit- 
ical creed as he gives it in "Unto This Last." 
To us, acquainted with our advanced ideas, 
these dicta seem moderate, but when they 
were propounded, nearly fifty years ago, they 
were voted dangerous in the extreme. Mi. 
Euskin's own father — a prosjDerous city mer- 
chant — ^vas horrified at the economic here- 
sies of his son. Yet now every one of these 
principles either has been put into opera- 
tion or is a subject of discussion among 
practical politicians. 

Euskin's economic and refonn plans, 
tliough sometimes passionate and erratic, are 
ever sincere and uplifting. Nothing could 
be more conciliating as well as inspiring 
than his thoughts on work and its cluties, 
and employer and emplo3'e read from the 
same page: 

"Work must always be and captains of 
^voi'k must always be."

The term exhibition of the School of Fine 
Arts was one of the interesting events of 
commencement week. It was held on Mon- 
day and Tuesday, from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m. 
This was the first students' exhibition held 
in the new studio, which is as admirably 
adapted for exhibition purposes as for regu- 

lar studio jn'acticc. Miss Knopf and Miss 
flarker may justly he proud of the remark- 
alile growth and the splendid work d(me in 
the department and great credit is rellected 
upon their management. The enrollment 
for the year has been over sixty and the en- 
thusiasm of the students is shared by the art

great source of pleasure to all who visited 
the studio. Scnue excellent work' in char-

Clippings fi'oiii The Greetings of 1917. 

The reunion of the class of 1907 took 
place in the Belles Lettres building on Maj 
28. For several reasons only eight of tlie 
eleven members of the were alile to bt 
jiresent. The absentees expre.ssed thir deep- 
est regrets in letter.-- read in the meeting, 
parts of wliicli are i.ssued in tliis copy of the 

The class was especially sorry not to liave 
with them ^Jiss Anderson, wlio was their 
class officer for three years. She is now in 
jSTew York City stud3'ing and it was imjiossi- 
ble for her to leave. 

Vov many years Miss Anderson was the 
bead of the mathematics department of the 
Woman's College, but in 1910 .she informed 
the President that she was going to take up 
china painting, which has liecome so popu- 
lar. In her china ])ainting she liad intro- 
duced geometrical lignrcs (hme in gujd. Her 
latest \v(*k is a vase, upon which she has 
skillfully arranged a polyhedron on one side 
and im the other two small frustrums. We 
biipc in tile near future to view some of 
these priceless treasures of art. 

Alr.s. JMaliel Fulk^r Johnson, former piresi- 
(lent o ftlie class ot' '07, presided over the 
meeting. After a brilliant career as a pian- 
ist in the College of Music, Miss Fuller 
taught violin and piano in her home town 
"1 Kastnn. a large city near Chicago. 

In DIl she was married to ilr. Josiah 
Johnson, the celebrated tenor singer from 
New York City. Their meeting was a most 
romantic one. At the Christinas time of 
I 910 Mr. Johnson was engaged to sing the 
tenor I'ole in the ".Messiah" given in Easton. 
iliss Fuller was secured to play the accom- 
l)animents. Cupid worked hard day and 
night, and six months later the friends of 
the happy pair read with delight the an- 
noimcement of their engagement. 

Mrs. Jolinson is her liusl)and's accom- 
jianist in the concerts which he gives all 
o\-er the world. 

Others jiresent at the reunion were iliss 
llortcnse ('anijiliell, who just returned from 
Berlin last ^^■eek; Miss Olivia llns-. the great 
literary genius, and Miss Larrimore. Miss 
Larrimore lias won fame at home and abroad 
not only as a j^ianist, but as an organist of 
the highest rank. 

During the absence of Prof. Stead, who 
is ill Europe giving a series of concerts. Miss 
Larrimore has entire charge of the large or- 
g;in department in the College of ilusic. 

Mrs. Inex liuekeljy Thom]ison, wife of the 
great evangelist Thompson of Boston, gave 
lier classmates an interesting account of her 
w(n-k since leaving school. She is at present 
ti-a\ cling with her husband and is a great 
lu'lp to him as his organist and choir leader. 

iMiss Bessie Morgan was toast mistress at 
the reunion. This young woman graduated 
in nuisic in "07, but immediately gave it up 
after leaving school, went to Chicago to 
study osteopathy, and is at the present time 




a specialist witli lieadquarters in Denver. 
"\Yhile in college some of her friends were 
under this treatment and became so de- 
lighted with what it had done for them, that 
to the surprise of all her friends she took it 
up as a profession. Multitiules flock to her 
from ail jjarts of the world for treatment. 
IJr. ilorgan also treats acute nervousness, 
especially in amateur pianists, and has been 
yer}' successful. 

Another present was Miss Olive Ains- 
worth. All through life she cherished the 
idea of Ijecoming a nurse, although in col- 
lege the fact was never revealed. She took 
her degree in the classical course at North- 
western after leaving the Woman's College, 
and then entered the Chicago Training 
iScliool for JSiurses, graduating there at the 
bead of her class in 1913. Since that time 
she has Ijeen in the leading hospitals and 
has had such success in the most severe cases 
that she was secured two years ago as head 
jiurse in the Cook county hospital, Chicago 

Ihe class of '07 graduated under the old 
course, so no degrees were conferred, but 
Miss Eunice Hopper, after graduating wdth 
the class, went back to the Woman's Col- 
lege and secured her degre in 'OU. Her work 
in science was not continued, for in I'JIO she 
went to Chicago and took a teacher's course 
in music under Mrs. Crosby Adams. Miss 
Hopper has now entire clrarge of the chil- 
dren's department of music in our great Wo- 
man's College. She is a competent teacher 
and the College has been indeed fortunate to 
secure her services. 

After the usual resolutions were passed, 
$2,000 was subscribed toward the class fund. 
The class adjourned to meet again in 1927. 

Here is part of a letter read in the meet- 

Fou Chou, China. 
My Dear Friends: I wish to thank 3'ou for 
your kind invitation to attend my class re- 
union, but i-egret it greatly that I cannot 
be there. My work is at pre5e7it very heavy. 
Fi-\-e years ago yesterday I was sent by the 
Young Woman's Christian Association to es- 
tablish associations in this part of China, 
Fou Chou being my headcjuarters. It took 
quite a while to learn the language and cus- 
toms of the people, and for three years my 
work seemed to be unsuccessful, but I am 

pleased to state that the Y. W. C. A. now 
has a building of its own and has a member- 
ship of 75. I am trying to teach these 
Chinese girls a few of the many things I 
learned at OLir belo'\-ed Woman's College. 
Trusting that the class may have a most 
happy reunion. I remain, yours most sin- 
cerely, E.sther Asi>lund. 

This clipping is from a current issue of 
tile Berlin Journal: Miss Hortense Camp- 
bell fl-as the magnet which drew a large au- 
dience to Beethoven hall last evening. Miss 
Campbell came to Grerniany five years ago 
and has studied under the celebrated 
teachers of singing. She has a beautiful

An article of unusual interest appeared in 
tlie current issue of the American Review of 
Kevie«s. It was the "Woman's Suffrage 
(Atmpaign," a movement which is under the 
direct superintendency of Miss Olive Huss, 
a member of the class of 1907. She is at 
present attempting to have a bill passed in 
the senate giving women the right to vote 
on all questions of general interest. 

We quote the following from this excel- 
lent article: "Miss Olive Huss, who is the 
leading spirit in the great movement to se- 
cure for women their rights, is one of the 
iorera<ist among those ■^^•ho are moulding the 
thoughts and estalili siting a higher standard 
of morals for the American people of to-day. 
j\Iiss Huss has the , courage of her convic- 
tions, and in her lectures front coast to coast 
has sticceeded in impressing a great many of 
her ideas upon the hearts of her hearers. 
She is a woman of unusual abilil:}^ upon the 
platform, having first attracted attention to 
herself as a public speaker liy her senior 
oration giveit on class day at the Woman's 
College of Jacksonville. 111., in Ma}', 1907. 
There is no question that with such a cham- 
pion women will at last be granted the 
rights which have been so long denied 

AYe of the Woman's College are proud 
that at least one of her daughters is giving

Secretary — Elsie Fackt. 

Treasurer — Alma Layton. The Y. W. C. A. sermon this year was de- 
Reporter — Vera Eoss. livered by Dr. Nate of Grace church. Some 




thoughts from this excellent sermon are as 
follows : 

"And lifting up their ej-es thej^ saw no 
man save Jesus onl}'." Math. 17-8. 

The Transfiguration, which probably took 
place on Mt. Harmon, wa.s a disclosure <ii 
I.Tod in Christ to a few chosen disciples. 

Though tile disciples liad every reason to 
believe the l)i\inity of t'hrist, yet it seemed 
necessary for them to have a special vision. 
(Tethsemane was drawing near and the dis- 
cijdes needed more strength and faith. The 
very voice out of the cloud made them j'eal- 
ize the magniUcence and glory of God. 

There are three principal feature^ of tlie 
transfiguration. 1. The vision of the glory 
of Christ as sometliiitg outward of ourselves 
without entering into it of oursehes. 
Clirist's countenance was altered and liis 
clothes shoiU'. Out of the cloud came a 
voice wliich said, "This is my beloxed son, 
hear ye him." Tliere was no indication, 
howevei', tliat tliey entered into the glory of 
God. nor that tlie glory of God entered into 
them. We have entered upon the factor 
that we are of things even though we liave 
Init entered in outwardly. 

2. The possession of the glory of God is 
inward rather than outward. God smote the 
disciples, and James, clear head, who could 
always think accurately and intellectually. 
fell on his face. Jolm also fell on his face, 
and f-'eter, who liad ben smitten of God, 
also when Christ touched him, asked that 
three tabernacles might he huilt, one for 
iMoses, one for Elias and one for Christ. 
This was not so foolish, as some people 
think, for a man smitten of God, should 
want to huild a tabernacle. This vision was 
given not to keep, hut to set his followers to 
work, not for inner thoughts, but for ac- 

3. The glory oF Jesus as outward, inward 
and then made into life, life witli all the 
opportitnities and possibilities into wliich 
each new life in Christ Jesus enters. 

The transfigured qualities which liave 
come to Its, though sinful, mourning, or 
suffering, all come through those, whom 
Jesus has touched. 

"\'ision is Jesus only. O for a glimpse of 
the face, gleaning with heavenlj^ grace. 


On the evening of itay 18 the Seniors 
ivere most charmingly entertained by Miss 

Promptly at T:o(i the guests went to Miss 
Weaver's room, \vhi.>re she awaited them. 
After a short time spent in pleasant conver- 
sation, small tables were brought in, around 
wliicJi the gtiests were collected. I'pon each 
table a vase of red roses was placed. The 
guests wer given paints, brushes aud jjaper 
and told to paint a rose in some way. This 
proved to lie highly amusing, for very few 
liad any idea wliat to ilo lirst. However. 
SI me of the paintings were (piite good. The 
roses were awarded as prizes. 

.Vtter thi-; lunch cloths were ]ilaeed upmi 
the tables. The gu<'sts wei'e gi\en little slips 
id' p.iper, upon which were conundrums, the 
an~«eiN being flowers. This also proved 
\ery entertaining.

consisted of ice cream in the shape of differ- 
ent flowers, macraroons and salted peanuts 
sei'ved in small while ]iaper roses, the class

The evening was cnie to which we will 
all look back with a great deal of pleasure. 

One of the most delightful events of the 
year was the Senior breakfast given May 13 
at the Colonial Inn by the class officer, iliss 

The day was ideal. The menit consisted 
of five cortrses and was perfect in every re- 
spect. The places were found by means of 
dainty little jjlace cards, decorated in tiny 
owls wearing Senior caps. 

Miss Anderson proved to be a most 
charming hostess, causing every one to thor- 
oughly enjoy themselves. The day was one 
that will long leniain in the memories of the 
Seniors, for it was one of the few times left 
for them to lie together. This thought only 
made them more anxious to make the most 
of every minute. 

On i\Ionday, May 20, the Sophomores ex- 
pressed a desire to add yet another to the 
already numerous pleasures of the Seniors. 

At four o'clock the Seniors congregated 
on the front steps, where they met the 
Sophomores. A large hay rack awaited 
them. They all hastily clambered upon it, 
after which, followed a delig-htful ride
